Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Raw
Vulnerable
Exposed
my gaping
heart bleeds

Enraged
Charging
To protect
Whatโ€™s ours

But itโ€™s too late
The tree screams
I weep
Cut to a stump
Far too young

I look
Directly into my
Neighbors eyes
piercing
She
without
A care

Naked
I stare
She could
Careless
More money
Than sense

This 40 year old
Redwood planted
by my
Friend
Has come to the end
And not revered

The average Redwood
lives 500-700 years
And often
2,000 years
But
Because
Deep pockets
Talk

Iโ€™m silenced
Cut to the core
My breath
Taken
away
as I
Mourn
A life
Cut
Too short
Stumped

Mourning My Friends,

This happened yesterday and it feels like Wordless Wednesday, so if I don’t comment for a bit please understand. I’m heartsick at the moment. I only post 2-3 times a week but I needed to get something out, so it didn’t fester all day inside. I’ve been trying to cover our fence line ever since we moved in but nothing seems to grow. So to come out and see this yesterday, truly sent me in a tisey. For protection of privacy, I didn’t show the whole picture where we can see their entire house now.

Better Days Ahead, but today I grieve.

Thanks for listening to my rant!

Bless you,

๐Ÿ’–

Cindy

I had a mimosa tree growing between my garage and a neighbor’s house . It was strange positioning in the least but I still was broken hearted when my neighbor cut it down . I still remember my friend’s reaction when I told her my reasoning for calling her sobbing inconsolably into the phone speaker. She thought someone had died . To me, it felt that way though . I named that tree Rosie . I would talk to it almost everyday and spend time writing poetry by it. I used to climb on my garage to do that. As a kid / teen , I was always climbing haha ๐Ÿคฃ . But in all seriousness, my Rosie tree was not causing any harm to the foundation of my neighbors home or my garage so the fact that they cut it down destroyed me for weeks . To be honest, I’m still upset about it when I think about it to this day !!! I’m sorry you went through that Cindy . This post is beautifully written .

You’re welcome ! And it’s true !! People just can’t see outside of their narrow scope sometimes . It isn’t even entirely their fault . That’s the sad part. We want to be angry with them . But it’s hard to stay angry when we realize how society misleads some people . It’s sad. Life , all life matters, no matter whether deemed unimportant to some. It’s a hard pill to swallow. You’re welcome. I absolutely loved it and felt it

A sad event. Maybe plant a new tree in its memory?

Oh Cindy, I feel your pain and anger and you have expressed it so well..Planting trees in its place is a good thing to do..but it won’t give back to the redwood the 660 more years it would have thrived…:( Your description was visceral and very moving!
