Weekly Photo Challenge: Look UP!

While old oaks linger still in mossy slumber

Overhead, new plans may be hatching
For time does not waste; it carries on.

More battles in our lives will fully rage.
Yet die not freedom’s plans for our tomorrows
Time ever keeps them marching on their way.

Look up!
