Double Jig


Double Jig
Ever since Cyril introduced us to that amazing world of seeing in nature things that aren't 'necessarily' there , (I can't recall the word) I've often looked at the two boughs of this odd shaped tree and thought them dancing a merry jig together .
Perhaps the heady scent from the rape pollen has got to me?

Good grief! Poet, I can see them dancing! I must have had the heady scent of something, but I don’t think it was Rape Pollen.
I’ve also been seeing Lucy up in the sky covered in diamonds.
Harry Krishna, Harry Krishna.
Peace and love, Peace and love.
I think I’ll have a little lie down now.
Oooo! thems lovely colours I can see Harry.

They’ve seen so many hares boxing they’re having a go themselves!

Are they dead, no leaves on the branches, any of them.

I see what you mean, Poet! I can also see them as two young lads squaring up for a fight, perhaps over a young lady! "Put 'em up lad, and we'll see who's tekkin 'er to t'dance!" It's just an instantaneous vision....if you look for more than a few seconds you lose it and it becomes just two trees.

The one on the right looks knock-kneed!

It reminds me of a Theodore Major painting.

Poet, Pareidolia, a good website here - https://earthsky.org/human-world/seeing-things-that-arent-there/

Its a really good photo Poet with the branches and trunks silhouetted against the blue sky and the yellow of the rapeseed. I can also see what you mean about them doing a jig - and dancing a reel or two, perhaps. Had the main central trunk fallen or been blown over at some time, or is it just growing the way it is?
I haven't seen hares for many years Veronica, hares and also rabbits were plentiful at one time in the fields near to where I was when young, but as you know folks would always go to wherever they were known to be to hunt them. I always found it fun to see the hares leaping up high above the crops to see whereabouts they or other hares or even folks were in the fields, you'd see the crop tops moving where they'd be running to and fro and then a hare would suddenly pop up. Those fields later got to be covered over with the buildings of Martland Park industrial estate.

So folks of Standish value all this beauty you still have on your doorstep and defend it from developers, you've already lost a lot of land to them, and you also know that some developer sat on a load of money somewhere will have his eyes set on all of this wonderful land, the only beauty these developers behold are even more wads of money to pad out their well proportioned seats.

Thanks for replying Cyril , I'll certainly have a look at that site .
The tree hasn't fallen but grows in that peculiar way. It hasn't leafed yet but neither have any of the other trees in the picture . When it does sprout some foliage I expect the pugilistic dancing hares will disappear until next winter .
My regards to all .

I think I will will stick to looking for faces on my pies.

Cyril , your last paragraph is beautiful musical poetry . When truth and honesty come together, what else can fly ? Thank you

Yes Cyril is always just right with everything he says. A good mix of sense and humour and never too staid.
