Being a tree ain’t easy

I am not

on the same page

with mom nature.

My wish for

a blue bird day

sparked guffaws, and

my references thought

as tomfoolery.

I feel frozen

and vulnerable to a

chilled wind as

mom nature dresses

and undresses my limbs

at her convenience,

not mine.

It’ll take a

blizzard of thoughts

and a forest without trees

for her to see

her lack of

fashion sense.

    1. Thank you, sweet Bella Girls. The trees in our area are filling out, except for a couple. I agree enough is enough! Bye-bye – Winter.Swinter! 😻
