Sea Tree

     It's a sea fan anchored to a rock. More of a summer decoration, I suppose. But I live so far from the sea, and at this time of year I look out my kitchen window on a cold, rainy day and see dozens of shapes just like it anchored to the soil of my back garden, with copper-scaled leaves swimming through currents of wet wind like fish beneath the waves. So I bring it out in the Fall, this barren sea tree. I imagine this is what its dreams are made of:


  1. A poetic pairing of word and picture. You are an inspiration! I shall look for the sea fan forms out my window :) Thanks!

  2. How fragile that must be. Is it a type of seaweed?

  3. lovely, both the words and sea-tree:)
