The Giving Tree

When I got back I got another impulse, to go visit Rocky. The old apple tree I buried him under has the deepest red apples. I usually make applesauce out of them but I didn't this year. I sat over his grave and cried and lots of thoughts about not being the best pet owner and wishing I'd been more conscious throughout his life came up.  I was told that the only death I was mourning was my own. Then I noticed an enormous spruce tree right there, its roots with as much character as the one on Pomroy's platform pyramid. 

We got a bad storm, and we don't have power right now. I looked out back and my magnificently tall old spruce tree that I just met and appreciated days ago has split clean off at the level I touched it, and crashed into my apple tree, breaking off a limb and covering Rocky's grave. 


Light on Earth "Don't turn your head. Keep looking at the bandaged place. That's where the light enters you.
And don't believe for a moment that you're healing yourself.~ Rumi
