Tree Bark

May 09/08
This solid, enduring Spruce tree,
has tufts of lichen attached
to its rough bark and a small friend
peering out at me. In the background
a slender Poplar stands with its smoother
bark and characteristic markings.

I pass by these "Painted" Poplars
almost every day

May 16/08
New leaves emerge
from this Cottonwood's trunk
expressing continued growth

Deeply furrowed bark
of a grandfather Cottonwood tree
