true story…

it just happened.
last night.
i was finishing up the stuff
that i finish up for the evening.

and i looked out my living room window…
i couldn’t get over the beauty.

across the street.
behind my neighbor’s house.
in the woods.
there was a tree standing in the light
while everything else was in shadow.

i went outside and stood in my yard and just stared.

its entire trunk was a golden coppery brown glow.
the leaves just shimmered.

effortless and yet everything.

i have much to learn…
