I'D LIKE TO BE THAT TREE...
BY GLORIA FAYE BROWN BATES aka GRANNY GEE
I was in Henderson, NC today on an errand. I had been watching the clouds of pollen blowing in the wind on my drive there. I turned off Hwy. 1 north to go to my destination... I was going to see my friend.
I was looking at homes, yards... I always hope to see a new idea to do something fun in our yard. My attention was drawn to a beautiful, old tree.
It stood there so gracefully.... draped in purple wisteria. I could almost imagine it being a dress with a rope of freshwater pearls. How beautiful that tree was! The thought came to my mind... if I were a tree.... I'd want to be that tree.
Tonight as I sit here, I look at that tree in my mind... it stood out to me and made an impression on me. Just that one tree that stood there like a grand lady in an old-fashioned long dress, a gown with her beautiful pearls. I wonder... have you ever imagined such when .... looking at a tree? Did you ever think about which tree you'd like to be... if you were a tree?
