Tree Like a Tree

Tree Like a Tree

In one corner of the courtyard there is the suggestion of a tree.
If the tree had branches it would be tall and leafy and birds would sing in it, but the branches have been chopped and from the trunk come short flat-topped stumps, stopped in mid air.
There is the feeling of a tree going places. The sky around it makes way for the possibility of branches. The word almost is in the air.
