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,
