And so I wondered ...

Last night, as I waited for my bus to take me home, I looked up at the beautiful tree standing alone on the sidewalk & wondered who felt worse: me, seeing the branches of the tree surrounded by powerlines, or the tree, seeing itself surrounded by concrete?

As I pondered this, I thought perhaps it's simply a show of strength. Because despite a sea of pavement enclosing it, the tree still finds Earth to take root in and flourish.
