I am one little tree
one little tree as you can see
as you can see I stand alone
I stand alone where my seed was sown
my seed was sown downhill from the rest
the rest of the trees are up by the crest
up by the crest they share water and sun

all right with me to be one little tree.

my back on you and then run out?

we need to hold onto tight
with white knuckles
even through the darkest night.
I knew what I wanted to say today but I’ve been experiencing a bit of a brain fog (not to be confused with a brain cloud -pardon the nod to Joe Versus the Volcano). So here are two efforts from today. You be the judge which one is better (if there is, in fact, a winner).

was always looking down –

all the way to the ground.
