Not just a channel

“All the time we forget — we’re not a tree — or a cool breeze — A hard rain is supposed to fall today — The Season started early and never went away”
“The sap has a harder time rising this season — its harder to read as I did last season — body sprawled — unmoving — sometimes I didn’t move my trunk except for meals — my twigs gently moving leaves”
“Sometimes we forget we’re a tree — bearing witness to whole worlds living and dying — we believe we’re a mammal scurrying — accomplishing — doing”

Hope ya’all take the time to remember your treeness today.
