    Trail of trees? Fantastic write. I can see the fertile soil shadowed by the wondrous trees. In my mind, they speak with love, the trees that are rooted with layers of history. (Report) Reply

    This takes me back to Bocaccio's writing. He was but a good author to have read. You did a superb job in this one. (Report) Reply

    Funny, but when I read your title, A Walk of Trees, I visualized trees walking, and possibly dancing, when I turned my back. But your journey through the woods was just lovely whether the trees are dancing or not. Maybe in a passing breeze? ? (Report) Reply
