Five tiny tree offerings

One of my favorite springtime occurrences is the awakening of trees from their deep slumber. The below are micropoems and other thoughts from my twitter timeline. Notice a common theme?


  • The trees breathe deeply like inverted lungs stretching upward.
  • The springtime trees have reaching hands, and the hands have thin fingers, and the fingers proudly hold their pearls of promise.
  • The trees are in love with each other in springtime. Their passion is shouted to the world in pollen.
  • Tiny clouds of green gracefully balanced over elegantly extended, long, woody fingers. The etiquette of spring trees.
  • Lessons from trees: cherish silence, bask in the sun, sway in the wind, keep some things private, stand tall.
