The western sky is peeking through this lovely protector.
The hum of the night birds, insects, and creaking of a swing being jostled--vie for my attention.
Deepest shades of green.
Some in darkness. Some illumined.
Some resting. some upturned.
When I grow up, I want to be a tree.
Stable. Grounded. rooted. secure.
Free. independent. beautiful. classic.
vibrant. lucid. wise. spontaneous.
self sufficient. protecting. lovely. safe.
Yes, when I grow up, I am going to be a tree.
