There's this tree (Poetry) - 10/25/2009 8:23:27 PM
I enjoyed "There's this tree." It reminds me of the time I came upon a yellow daisy growing all alone through a crack in a busy sidewalk. I took a snapshot of it and put together a few words and gave it to our little local paper. I was sure it would be printed, because as your tree, well it was as your tree! But, it didn't get published. However, a few years later my husband and I found ourselves part owner in the paper that came after the one that did not print the flower photo. I went out of my way to publish ones that came with what they considered "special" articles or photos, often spending much time proofing to make the author or photographer look good. I can see that little tree, the wind blowing it, the clouds sailing by...good job.
