the math of trees.

Standard

when looking at the trees on the kinder playground

it’s easy to see how tall the little people are 

the green does not dare begin until it is

above and safely out of the reach of their tiny hands

even if they are standing on tippy toes

 pulling, climbing, bending, picking, snapping

the trees do the math and live to tell the tale.

“trees and plants always look like the people they live with, somehow.”
