The Scarecrow

By Kahlil Gibran

Once I said to a scarecrow, “You must be tired of standing in this
lonely field.”

And he said, “The joy of scaring is a deep and lasting one, and I
never tire of it.”

Said I, after a minute of thought, “It is true; for I too have
known that joy.”

Said he, “Only those who are stuffed with straw can know it.”

Then I left him, not knowing whether he had complimented or belittled
me.

A year passed, during which the scarecrow turned philosopher.

And when I passed by him again I saw two crows building a nest
under his hat.

“One day you will ask me which is more important? My life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life.” Khalil Gibran. One of my favorite poets Antonio. Your photography is just as beautiful 😊

#1 is my favorite, but I also like how you edited the coconut (so strange that it's burning!) and the colors in the scarecrow picture. Now I'm going to have to look up burning coconuts. smile

I think there's a festival in Indonesia where they throw burning coconuts to one another. Thanks dear friend

The field and the scarecrow #3 is really nice. Love the colors that pop around the building. I didn't know coconut burned,or did they pour an igniter to burn it?

I do not know. It was already burning when I got there. Thanks my friend
