Arbor's Summer Fling by Gregory Cicio

It was a bright August morning

The trees were infatuated with the sky’s great power

Their leaves lapped at the heavens as if to suckle of its sustenance

Roots bulging with excitement

Branches reaching out in ecstasy

Leaves inhaling the sweet aroma of the late summer breeze

No thought of tempest or storm

No modesty in the midst of the surrounding neighbors

For the seasons had been painfully long

Thirst and expectation had been in great supply

Yet now in these unscripted moments they are one with the heavens and it is glorious
