Five Minute Friday ~ Tree

15 Nov


“Yes I am the Lorax who speaks for the trees, which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please.”

I’ll admit it, I’m a tree hugger.  I love trees.

I love to stomp through a nice forest and traverse their roots.

I love the leaves in all their colors through Spring, Summer and Fall.

I love a cold, dark wintry day when the trees are black and stark and empty standing tall against a formidable sky.

I love them when they are covered in snow, moss, and fungus.

I especially love them when they shelter bugs and birds alike.

In my childhood days I spent hours climbing the trees in our yard.  I practically lived in the Maple out front and the McIntosh out back.

These days I’m happy to wander amongst them or to burn their dead wood for a campfire.

Then I relish the smell for days.

So, here’s the deal… Fridays are for fun.

Unedited writing that’s good for the soul – You are always welcome to join us…
