Trees are my favorite lovers.

They are always there for you.

People walk away.

Trees are marvelous spirits.

You can talk to the spirits in the tree.

You don’t even need a cellphone to talk to a tree.

If you listen carefully, they whisper back. They never shout at you.

And trees warn you.

If you watch them carefully, they tell you what has happened, what is happening, and what is going to happen—especially in terms of the weather.

When everybody goes away, the trees remain on the land, waiting.

Interested in some of my published works?
