Poem of Trees

With a love of hiking & the great outdoors, I was inspired by the beautiful words of a friend’s writing, “Trees Are The Poem The Earth Wrote To Heaven“, to create this poem:

Of roots and trunks and branches, too
And don’t forget each leaf
With bark that’s better than a bite
More sun is warm relief

Let’s not discount the rain
It’s most important, too
Each season brings real change
In sum, that’s how I grew

The sky above has quite a view
With colors close to ground
Each forest has so many trees
Go hike, and look around


Photo: I took this photograph last autumn at the Fall Creek Falls State Park.

Indian Flats Falls

Morning fog surrounds the upper tier of Indian Flats Falls, located in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, in Tennessee. It’s an 8 mile hike out and back, but worth the trek – scenery includes four tiers of waterfalls totaling 60-feet.

Prints available – see more here:

The photograph captures change of season autumn colors reflecting along Cane Creek, located on the Cumberland Plateau at the Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee. See more in my galleries at Society 6 and Fine Art America. Thanks for visiting!

It’s the right time of year to enjoy the great outdoors.

Cane Creek Cascades

Standing 30-feet tall, scenic Cane Creek Cascades are located in the expansive Fall Creek Falls State Park, near Spencer, Tennessee.

Situated conveniently near the Betty Dunn Nature Center, easy access to the cascades allow visitors of all ages to enjoy the beauty of nature during all-seasons in Tennessee.

Free admission, ample parking, restrooms and a gift shop are available. There is also a brand new suspension bridge across Cane Creek, though still closed during final preparations, providing access to hiking trails.

Change of Seasons

After a night of rain and wind, a morning fog lingers with golden leaves floating in water. Photographed at Indian Flats Falls, along the Middle Prong Trail in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.

Golden Shade of Autumn

Dry leaves crackle as I step along a hillside by the river, at peace in the forest beneath the vibrant, golden shade of autumn.
