Our Ways, Our Lives

I have no winter, and spring in dictionaries. I hike as when I like. Leaving a fallen tree on the ground, the shoots sprout whenever they want. These are our lives.


Birds do not have sweat glands, those shoots too. This is the difference between me and them. Birds fly away because of my beads of perspiration.


The shoots cannot. Never think they have to run away, though confusedly they are in a havoc, as we can see in the second picture. The reason? They have no nose.


I observe many interesting lives, thus always in upclose, and enjoy pretty moments on my hikes, though I am soaked.

These are our ways, our lives.

I went out and got bombed by a weather bomb, my umbrella faces back ward.

I come home and faced another bomb. " Why you go out?", when he found out it was his umbrella that got bombed.

I am sure they don't mind when you are soaked. You probably don't mind when they are soaked.

So nice with your story and the shoots. The old branch can still bear young shoots showed how strong the cells inside the old wood! =:=

FIRST picture! If that branch can do God's will, sprouting two shoots (brother and sister?, why can I not do God's will? Well, sometimes I do, but it's accidental. Like a miracle is accidental!!!

Photos? OUTSTANDING! thanks for your work, and sharing here, Rainfields.

The shoots are stuck in place forever in the same place, but you have the freedom to move from being soaked.
