(A letter to the neighbor’s tree)
Dear Tree Across the Street:
What’s up? Whatcha doin’?
Is there something going on we don’t know about?
I mean, I get that change is good ~ and inevitable ~ but why are you in such a big hurry?
It is now just the end of August, it’s simply too soon.
This all seems to be moving so fast!
And I personally see no need for such drastic measures.
Relax. Take your time.
We just got Summer back.
There’s plenty of time for you to show off all of your colors… and we all really, really look forward to it when it happens!
But you should wait until the time is right.
