Stump Clump

A  L  O  H  A !
 How disheartening
to see this stump.

It had been
a lovely tree I
saw most every day-

What fierce blossoms,
and welcome shade it
gave us for years

 How long does it take
for a dead, stump
in dry dirt
to come to life?
[ look at that top pic again ]

It's just been a 
couple months it seems!

This blossom lantern, depending 
from a Rainbow Shower Tree knows:

" The best time to plant a tree
is twenty years ago,
the second best time
is today. "
                 Chinese Proverb

Thank You
for resting a while!
                      Fondly, cloudia
