Thursday Tree Love: The Tree with the Eye


Trees make me wonder

about the shapes they grow into

looking like arms or faces.

Is it a coincidence? By design?

A message?

Trees make me wonder

About the feeling I get

When I lay hands on their trunks.

Is that a vibration? The flow of energy?


Trees make me wonder

When they creak, sway, and rustle in the wind.

Are they singing? Dancing?

Or just enjoying the moment?

There’s this tree at the Farm Animal Sanctuary where I volunteer. I believe it is a water oak. It offers me shady spot to park in the summertime. I wonder if it’s watching me.

  1. I love when trees have eyes. 👀

  2. I love this. I love trees 🌳💚

  3. What a beautiful poem! I also love trees.

  4. JoAnna, did you also notice the copious tears falling from the eye?

    • Thank you for pointing that out, Rosaliene. I did not consciously think of them as tears, but they remind me of eyelashes that turn into tears. The sanctuary is a peaceful place, but we are all aware of the pain and suffering.

  5. Hi JoAnna, a lovely poem. Thank you!

  6. Love this. I once found a tree with a scowly face!

  7. I read some of your comments and realized I wasn’t the only one who saw trees. Perhaps the tree is feeling the suffering of Mother Nature. I hope those were just normal streaks! Alana ramblinwitham

    • I must have been in denial and appreciate your perceptiveness. There is plenty of suffering that would bring tears. The animals at the sanctuary are well-loved but there are so many still suffering. I’m going to hug that tree next time I go there.

  8. Your posts about trees are some of my favorites 😍

  9. Beautiful words JoAnna! The tree trunk does seem to be eerily watching everyone around through its ‘eye’!!!

  10. Very intriguing look and yes that eye catches attention right there. Thanks for sharing and joining, Alana. I also loved reading the verses you wrote. it’s beautiful!

  11. That tree is definitely keeping an eye on anyone out there. Loved this capture, JoAnna.
