Shedding

The Acacia trees(acacia pycnantha)  in the Philippines are shedding. These large deciduous trees are 30-40 meters tall, and their trunks reach up to two meters in diameter.

When the Acacia trees shed their leaves, people say they look like dead trees. I see differently – I am mesmerized by the hidden beauty that are finally exposed when the Acacia sheds its leaves. What was hidden becomes apparent:The dark, sinewy, graceful limbs, reaching for the sky are revealed – showcasing a silent yet vibrant dance.
