unnamed 1.18

there is a beautiful tall tree in the middle of the forest
the tree’s limbs are long and nimble
yet strong enough for birds to land and nest on
the tree top kisses the sun and has the perfect view
of the forest floor and its surroundings
humans gather underneath and admire it’s slender frame
against the blue sky above

one day a storm sweeps in and knocks the tree to the ground
it is now short and it’s width is more noticeable
bare of branches and leaves

how does the tree reach back up and kiss the sun
how does it encourage birds to land on it
or remember what the view looked like
before the memories fade away into the clouds
