A Good Tree Story

Because
you can never
have too much
evidence
that my dad belongs
among leaves and bark:




This Thursday:
I wonder
have you climbed
a tree this week?
Or ran your hands
along bark -
rustled among leaves -
Or moved like a bird
flapping and gliding
and peering

towards the sky above?

  3. Trees are people too! They talk to you, smile with you, accept hugs graciously...

    They were here before, and still will be long after we leave this beautiful world... I think trees are special too Miss Emily. And I love the look of your Dad. You're blessed.

  6. Beautiful tree, beautiful Dad, beautiful photos : )
    Trees show us how to reach up for the sun and the stars and grow strong and resilient. Important lessons in life can be learned from trees.....
    bless you Emily
