The Tree

CCC #27

It was there that they planted her. Once upon a time, when they were young and very much in love.

It was there that they planted her. There, where the sun was full. There where the rains fell, trickling down, through her, into the surrounding fields.

It was there that they planted her, but it was she that brought forth from the womb of her earthen mystery, the tree.

The tree that once grew and blossomed, as she would have. The tree that served as a living reminder, that she had lived.

The tree that watched over them, much as they had envisioned themselves watching over her. The day they welcomed her into their world. Into their lives. Into their hearts.

Only to find, she had no intention of staying.

Once upon a time, when they were young and very much in love..
