The Trees

By widtink
The Trees"

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream 'Oppression!'
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
'The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light'
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw

great composition, use of w/a very assured, doF excellent. great lens btw.

the world a blur to most
most see a tree as a tree
the day you actually see
when the world is not the same
a tree is no longer a tree
a tree is something that bears fruit
a tree is something beautiful
even in the harsh winds
a tree stands its ground
a tree with leaves of majestic green
no longer just a tree
but a work of art
that is the day you see the world
that is the day the world comes into focus
that is the day you see the tree.
