Two Trees Talking
By Mark Freeman, author of Cricket Nature.
At the edge of a forest, where a cliff overlooks an ocean, a couple tall trees were talking in the dark late one night.
One said, "May I ask you something?"
"Certainly," said the other.
"I know you all have been all over the world. I, on the other hand... well, I have never been out of this forest. So my question is, What was it like for you in other places?"
The other tree brought in its branches a bit to gather its thoughts.
"Well, I'll tell you," it said.
But it couldn't. Because at that moment, a sudden gust of wind blew. And then another, and another, and suddenly you couldn't see the stars anymore for the clouds racing up.
