Be firm in one’s convictions

I was fascinated with this tree and others like it in the Greenough district. The determination of nature to succeed even in difficult circumstances inspired me to write this small verse to ponder.

For us to achieve

 We must be firm in our convictions

Yet flexible enough to absorb and deflect

The power of the elements

The trees have grown this way due to the prevailing ocean winds.  Greenough is a coastal town with a population over 800 and is situated along the Brand Highway, 400km north of Perth and 24km south of Geraldton. Greenough is known for its historical buildings and the leaning trees.
