Daily Prompt: Landscape

When you gaze out your window — real or figurative — do you see the forest first, or the trees?

Landscape - from my garden - WordPress

Peace, quiet, beauty
Perhaps a landscape painting, but real
Everything perfect
The forest intact
Trees blossom and bear fruit
Hedges grow perfectly
Nothing out of place
A landscape to relish
Relax and enjoy?

In another country far away
Soldiers marching through fields
Earth flattened by tanks
Gaping holes where bombs once settled
Vegetation poisoned
Scraping earth looking for water
Children dying
People fighting for the right to eat and live

And we relax
Content with our picture book world.

    • Step in any time – you are welcome. Yes it is from the garden. I live on an estate and having a ground floor appartment we have two gardens instead of balcony. The tree on the left is my apple tree, now in flower, and the one of the right has red leaves. I took the photo yesterday.

    • We had to wait a long while until we realised our dream of a garden and living in the country. We have now been living here about fifteen years, but there are times when I get a little twinge of guilt knowing that we have it all and others have nothing.
