Tree.



I woke up feeling so emotional for the tree.
The respect taken from the tree is worse than anything before or ever could be.
After we use it like stolen ivory without even noticing it happening on more of a basis than even ivory, stolen from giants of the animal family, just to wipe us clean or see its children fall like snow tapping our skin and loosing our focus in miriad glaze.
And creatures like me even eating its bark, leaves and fruit like cannibals to prevent global pollution of things formed in plastic.
Yet now as plastic bacteria are discovered are our tracks covered? Natural disasters inevitable reactionary of trees pleading to earth to "Save me. They're killing me! Enough! Just enough!"; believe you me.
So I ask you to ground yourself yes, but you're also - hugging a tree!
