This is my second post for the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge sent to me by Doug Warren.
The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you. Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. And actually everyone can join in. So feel free to if you like the idea.
A handmade canoe sits quietly in the Heritage museum in Ketchin Alaska. Probably made by the Tlingit, Haida, or Tsimshian cultures. What conversations had to be heard by the once living tree. First it heard the noises of nature as it grew from a tiny sapling to a big strong tree. The tree might have heard little animals taking refuge in it. The tree might know about the animals of all sizes running by or resting in its shade. Then, when it was the correct size, a someone cut it down to make into a canoe to provide a source for a family to hunt and fish. A truly modest use of the tree from Mother Nature.
I would like to send the Five Photos, Five Stories to Betty of Idahobluebird50. I like Betty’s site because she not only has her own photos and various post, but is a reviewer of wonderful fun books. As mentioned before, it is totally up to you to accept this challenge.
