My Cart 


Suzanne Comer Bell


after the tree I loved was cut


There is a log
that divides its time
— in lengths —
between being 
a tree
and waiting to be
thrown on your fire.

It's chilly here, too, and perfect weather to make good use of those logs. I think trees understand our need ... Suzanne in North Carolina

Lovely one Suzanne, I have lots stacked by the fire and am feeling a bit guilty now. Maire in a chilly Ireland. x
