The trees are gone…

by Kay Rob

The three trees in the backyard are gone now. Three lonely stumps that will be ground down before the end of the week. I know that I have a strong connection to them, but I don’t know if what I am feeling is from the trees or not. I feel sadness, but there is nothing in my life now that should cause me to feel this way. Am I feeling the tree’s sadness? Such a strange thought pattern to have and subsequently accept it as fact.
