Trees and walking

leave a comment »

She walked a mile to see the tree stand before the twilight.
She chose to walk the mile because walking was slower and subtle like dusk,
the receding city noise, and the presence of the passing scenery, and motion,
and time, and things growing, shrinking and wilting within that scale.
She chose to walk the mile to give the tree time to grow, and herself, too
so that looking upon the tree stand against the fading light in the sky
she could meet the full greatness with her own smile.
