Downed and Upended

I drove past this beautiful hemlock blown over in one of our coastal storms. Their root systems being as shallow as they are and their full-time foliage makes them prime candidates for tipping over in a brisk wind.

Downed
Upended
Downhearted
Uprooted
Down trunk
Up roots
Down branches
Up rocks
Down shade
Up dirt
Down nests
Up tunnels
Down squirrels
Up worms
Downfallen
Uplifted

  1. It's such an interesting snag of roots, etc. I'm glad you shared the pic, too. Like the approach to the fallen tree, the ups and downs of it all, the bad and the good, of course. Hope you're feeling better, Donna.

  3. How creative! Taking something natural and playing with the words from it.

  4. You did end with "uplifted" which is what happens when you put pictures with words and post it on TWT. The ups and downs get us down, but somewhere, some how, by someone/something, we eventually are uplifted. I loved your comment on my post: "Sometimes the ease of using technology is outweighed by the difficulty." Amen!! You do have a way with words. Thanks for reading/commenting.
