Diddle and Twiddle each played
their own fiddle
and since there were only two of them playing
No one was in the middle
They played tactfully(and as Diddle
ejected a bit of spittal)
Twiddle nervously giggled and said,
“It seems to be starting to drizzle”
“Please don’t piddle;
the rhyme does have a middle”
And then,in his transmittal,Twiddle said,
“This poem seems to
have a riddle”
Then,his third brother,No one,said,
“I’m just a triple nobody
stuck here in the middle,
so please do not belittle”
And it’s enlightening to psychologically exist
With that,you need not quibble
[Note: The following are photos of an old dead tree that is adjacent to a large, local hospital. It is situated within the hospital grounds, right next to where many handicapped parking spots exist. Almost as if it had been in tune with the comings and goings of the patients, face shapes exist in places where the tree’s bark fell off. How many “faces” can you see within the tree’s patterns?]

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped.
I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

I think there must be Irish blood running through your veins!
… with or without liquor?! 🙂
Sorry I don’t see any faces (maybe I’m just too tired after a 2 hour wait at the vets this morning ) – but I do see an ‘Oscar’ type shape to the bottom right. 🙂
Either you have to clean your computer screen or i have to get a better camera! 🙂 We know what those long days at the vets can be like; we hope everything is OK!
haha I just seem to see things differently!
And yes, all OK at the vets, thank you. 🙂
What a great picture! I love to find faces in tree trunks! I can see about 4 maybe 5. Thank you.
Great that you see them! Old trees can be so interesting up-close or from quite a distance! 🙂
Very cool tree and riddle.
So glad that you appreciate them, Sandy! 🙂
wonderful, Thomas, have a nice weekend, regards Mitza
Thanks, and hoping you have a wonderful weekend too, Mitza! 🙂 It’s been cold and rainy here, but we need even more spring rain.
I could send you some, we have too much 🙂
This photo is cool. I only see three. 🙂
Thank you, Amy! Three is good enough… and that goes along with the poem! 🙂
Very neat, enjoyed both poem and the photos!
So glad that you enjoyed both! 🙂 Elderly trees, like people, can have their own intrinsic beauty!
Lovely textures in your images, and very clever poem!
Thanks much, Karen! 🙂 I hope that they don’t remove that old, dead tree from the hospital grounds; it has a whole lot of character!
& it’s not
& non-post 🙂
i don’t know
what your comment
and i do know. 🙂
(We are all faces in the wood of life.)
You fiddle with a riddle very well Tom! And I love your faces in the tree. 🙂
