The falling

December 27, 2013

Wind battered. Rain sodden. Sun baked. For two hundred years the tree had braved the elements. But then the great storm came. Arms waving like a man overboard, the tree held on for dear life, hoping to be saved. Until finally it conceded it was time. Time to let go.


** thanks to Daisy for setting me the challenge of writing about a tree today.
