Due North of the cabin, stands Cherry Tree. Cherry Tree is probably the oldest tree on the part of the land that was once open Cow pasture. It's mostly dead, though there is a small section of it that still leafs out in Spring.
It is a beautiful tree, tall and expansive, it's many trucks reaching high into the Sky. Even it's dead branches have a specific artistic grace that I find alluring.
I know it will fall soon, or I will cut it down, but for now, it stands tall and beautiful, available for me to appreciate.
Cherry Tree reminds me of the truth that everything is temporary, but even so, there is beauty for me to appreciate if I choose to see it right here, right now.
