TREE TALES

GOSSIP IN THE GROVE
(Two Trees Talking)

“Where’s the sun been lately?”
“That fog doesn’t really do it for me.”
“Our tall Redwood friend across
the creek likes it.”
“Well, I don’t need no cooling off.
You know what I mean?”

“Listen to Bud over there creaking.”
“When he was just a sapling
I ‘d tell him, ‘Child, stand tall!’
Did he listen to me? No!
Now it’s back pain all the time.”
“Girl, I hear ya.”

“Did you see that?
Another dog off leash.”
“Shut up! I am so sick
of being peed on!”
“Got to admit, they’re pretty cute.”
“But do they gotta stop at every tree?”

“This morning I saw a guy
go by with a chain saw.
Gave me the shivers.
You know, I’m not ready yet
to be a fence post.”
“Oh yeah, copy that!”
