three

Ooops
 cant
 enlarge
 this
as much
 as big 
as
I would
like 

its an Instragram iPhone photo
 of 
three 
paper birch trees 
they live along the path 
just as you walk
 from 
Riverside Park
 into 
Riverside Park South 

we walked
 all the way down along the river on July 4th 
I love 
the way 
these
 'peel'

the rough bark
sort of
 reminds 
me
 of 
pineapple

 squint
peek through your lashes
  see 
if you dont think so too

  2. An interesting juxtaposition of nature and the modern building peeking through the background.

  3. I squinted...they DO look a bit like a pineapple. ;-) Fascinating tree...I don't believe I've seen that variety. Nice "Three," Daryl!

  9. I like these trees ... they remind me of our sycamores which are always peeling away.

  11. Dang! No way could I see the pineapple! Maybe I need a new screen for my computer...I couldn't believe how many could see how they looked like a pineapple. Back to where's Waldo for me. Liz S.
