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.

    roots in the ground
    no need to look
    every corner
    and turn
    you get hit
    and bump and grind burned!

    Her “fashion sense” is way off. Timing sucks too, lol. Good one, Eugenia.

    That was a fun read Eugenia…..and I agree every day should be a bluebird day. Though I loved the old Christmas cards that highlighted the red breasted robin against the snow…..but don’y mess with Mother Nature.
