I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas yesterday if you are a Christmas celebrator! I did, and I totally forgot about today’s post. Oops! Sorry. Anyway, belatedly, here we go.
Last fall, while walking Captain Jack around the block, I saw this tree person. Love it! Here are 3 things this photo makes me think of:
1) how when you’re a kid up in a tree, you see and hear all sorts of funny things in your neighborhood because nobody realized you’re there
2) that maybe being forced to be still lets you connect with people (like those folks who hang out on their porch in old books and movies)
3) Ents, from Lord of the Rings
And here’s my first draft!
Too Much Time in My New Treehouse?
By July’s finish,
my eyelids blinked bark
and my hair rustled
in the wind
