Shape of a citrus tree

The alphabet "P" or the number four in opposite direction?

I like this shape of a small citrus tree. Its density and the openness of its branching in this unique and rather abstract way is quite appealing to me.

Shape and structure is the most dominant feature of a tree at any time of a year, so sometimes I have this feeling that trees actually communicates with us through the shapes they attain rather than the leaves they grow.

So what do you think, is it the alphabet "P" or the number four in opposite direction?

A desolate tree - Remains of a glorious past

"The time of spring is past,
The rose-leaves in the garden drift apart,
Among the trees the bulbul sings no more.
How long, madness, shalt thou hold my heart?
How long, exaltation, shalt thou last
Now spring is o'er ?"
