Something to think about

Standard

This is the oldest of our neighborhood’s little grove of cherry trees.

It is the first tree to bloom of this little grove, every year, without fail.

Look closely at the base.

It is hollowed out, and has been this way for at least the past five years.

It is damaged beyond repair.

The side view of the tree.

I wonder if the tree knows that it is irreparably damaged?

I wonder if it cares?

Doesn’t seem to matter to the tree.
