A sapling is planted and grows to maturity:
becomes very beautiful and functional..
It is a permanent fixture in our lives.
One day out of the blue our beautiful tree
Develops a disease and dies.
When the tree is removed it leaves a huge empty space.
Gradually one becomes accoustom to not seeing the tree.
Mother Nature does her job by covering the chasm with
grass and soil: leaving a small indentation.
