A Tree In Sunlight

Cheerfully greets me

In early morning

It smiles as the sun shines through

Green flourishing leaves

It looks strong and sturdy

It has stood for years

Sways and dances in the breeze

The tree is loyal

It stands, protects, and provides shade

To all who come near

Birds fly high up in the branches

Some of the branches crack and fall

The tree is in an area

Where insects crawl, fly, and buzz around it

The branches look like they are aging

The bark is showing signs of age too

A tree in sunlight

Lovely as a summer day.
