Thursday Tree Love: Survivors


Trees at K Park

Guardians of the playground.

Three separate oaks

Or all from one acorn?

In decades past,

My children played hide and seek

Peeking around their trunks.

Two years ago

The city marked the middle one,

The one that leaned low.

We neighbors tried to save it,

Talked about a tree sit.

The city said it was diseased.

It could fall on someone’s child.

So we gave in.

And they cut down the middle oak.

The survivors stand strong,

But surely they miss their friend.

We learn to let go

Remembering the fallen.

  1. Your photos give me a good feel for where this fallen tree lived and loved. 🙂

  2. A tree that was loved and still remains in your memories! Letting go can be especially difficult…

  3. Sometimes we have no choice than to let go. And even when we let go, our memories don’t let it go. Beautiful trees and that message is profound. Thanks for joining, JoAnna. Glad you were able to join. See you on the 24th!
