Skyscrapers of these woods
-only the penthouse views
are encased in greenery.
Looking up towards the blue sky and glowing sun, it struck me that only the very tops of these coniferous trees proudly fanned out green needles.
The remainder of the tree was a skinny, bare, straight trunk. Hardly any branches reached out from this tall column of arbor. Yet, it kept reaching higher battling for the light of life.
Standing there, looking up, I felt so small.
