a tree.

This tree caught me outside my Art History class today. Of course I’d seen it before, but today, it seemed more alive, more expansive. You see the trunk first divides into two broad branches? They seemed to dance, and the space that kept them apart was filled with the thrill of their attraction. And then the twisting branches rose above and spread themselves over me.

Not a cloud in the sky, so blue!

I love trees. Imagine what they could tell us if they could talk...

Who knows, Kathryn, but we'd forget it anyway (We would be too embarrassed to write it down in front of them ;) )
