A Tree In Sunlight

a small tree photo: Tree 50188ADC.jpg

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.

The tree in sunlight

Lovely as a summer day.
