Wonderment


mommy, that tree looks scary
::
there's nothing to be scared of dear
it's just cold
::
its summer clothes have fallen to the ground
leaving only bare arms to face the cold of winter
::
wait until the first snow
when it dons its winter white coat
that sparkles brilliantly in the sunlight
::
wait until spring
when beautiful fragrant blossoms 
sprout from its fingertips
::
wait until summer
when its bare arms can no longer be seen
for all its lush green attire
::
wait until autumn
when it comes ablaze in color
and once again begins shedding its summer clothes
::
just wait
::
that tree is not scary
it is full of wonderment

until next time,
