I like the mental image of a tug-of-war between wind and roots. Nicely done 🙂
Beautiful imagery! Love this.

“rooted with defiance” I even feel this way sometimes. Great accompanying picture!
Me too! And thank you.
Originally I saw the crown as the peaks, but the more I look at the picture the more I see a crown on the face of the rock.
Trees. Stubborn things!
Trees seem to win more often than not. I don’t know why the storm keeps trying.
This is excellent. Love the inspirational quality. And the ending is perfect. Great job!
Thank you so much!
Trees often wins.. great and smooth use of the words.
