Daily Prompt: Longevity

Longevity– the daily post prompt for today — brings to mind the majestic and mysterious oak trees in our yard. Though we’ve only been in residence for 5 years, the house itself was firmly planted just over 100 years ago. I imagine that the oaks put down their roots about a century ago too. I love laying under them looking up into the moss covered maze of gnarled branches, making their way up to reach the sun. Squirrels and racoons scamper along the steadfast trunks and birds of all sorts make their homes in the leafy climbs. With my little iPhone photos here I offer you a hint of their majesty and longevity.
