An Ode to a tree.
I can't believe that I have tears in my eyes as I write this. I mean, it's just a tree right? or is it? In a matter of days, on my birthday to be exact, this beautiful tree will be ripped from the border between ours and our neighbor's yard. This tree is one of the reasons our back yard feels a bit like a sanctuary. I love the shade it has provided. I love the sound the leaves make when the wind blows through them. I love the privacy it provides from the ugly apartments behind us. I love laying on the grass and looking up through its many branches as the light filters in from high above. I guess you could say that I am heartbroken.
