A Tree Story

A Tree Story

The tree is the story of the natural world; each dancing leaf like a page from a book, the stem branching out twizzling throughout each leaf, telling a different story in every one. The trunk warping upwards reaching into the sky, shadowing over the ground that lies before it, while around a tower of a plant, branches and leaves come twisting outwards, spreading through the air and leaning over their lower brothers and sisters, protecting the birds and new-borns that lay surrounded by a duvet of tender green leaves. Books and tales are spawned from trees, but the true story is within the tree itself.
