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.”

-zora neale hurston

a tree by any other name……

Standard

melbourne assigned some of its trees

numbers and email addresses

so that residents could report problems

like low hanging branches.

instead, thousands of people wrote them love letters.

what would you write to them?

“if you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.”
