If the tree is just a tree…
…then the predawn sky highlights the asymmetry of this aged sentinel, perhaps spurring a desire to compose a haiku….
If the tree is a metaphor…
…then look how much tree-ness survives even when the main trunk is decimated…and, similarly, arthritis may slow me down, but I’m still me.
[Aw, heck, I had an idea for this when I started, but somehow I ended up with a lame finish here, no pun intended!]
And, by the way, beam B-day wishes toward Planet A-Squared!
