Road to a Jacaranda ForeststeemCreated with Sketch.

“We all have a tree inside us. Finding it is just a matter of time.” ― Sahar Delijani

   Some beautiful and long-lasting trees bear purple flowers each spring. Flowering cherries and redbuds are harbingers of spring, with early blooms. Others, such as the jacaranda, bloom later in the season but provide color for one to two months.  

A Jacaranda tree stands tall, and sways as if to say,
Look! At this magnificence, I’m wearing blue today.
forgive the way I shout aloud, my lack of modesty
but nowhere in this troubled world is finery like me.

Light rays slide between each leaf, to settle on the tips
to lightly kiss your face with a hundred million tiny lips.
You only have to lift your eyes to greet the filtered sun
a sight I guarantee will warm the heart of everyone.
~ Ann Beard

Wonderful painting!

Beautiful work of art and narrative! Thank you for sharing.

I relie like your style the colors on this painting are amazing and the details are great thanks for sharing your work and I'll be glad to hear your opinion about my work here is the link and hope you'll enjoy it :)

Just the fact that we provide each other the means to live is incredible. When I am in a forest I can literally feel a connection with them. Mutual need, and love as well.


Both trees and humans have tendency to provide relief. I wish our relationship with trees and forests could have been more than symbiotic
