I went for a run

and I saw a tree
that a wire fence surrounded
and the tree had leaves
but the tree was droopy
fresh, green leaves
vibrant little nerve endings
slouching branches
sulking, sad tree
cheery on the outside
dejected on the inside
wilting away.
I ran away from the tree
and toward it at the same time.

One thought on “I went for a run

  1. I love your poems. You are so talented. I hope you are able to find the perfect job. Keep smiling and keep running. 🙂
