fallen broken oak
good for climbing cubs–you won’t
let me help you now

    Isn’t that that the truth? They find “wings”.

  6. I like that, “you won’t let me help you now”… the broken oak has found a new purpose. And a good purpose it is, just as important as being majestic and all.

      Joseph Harker,
      🙂 This is one of my favorite pictures, and it is so hard to believe how much they have grown. The one on the peak is my youngest, always the monkey. The other two are his cousins. It is one of the saddens and delights photos. Thank you for sharing it with me.
