If you can imagine yourself as a tree, what kind of a tree are you and why?
Having grown up where trees were like living treasures by their rarity - I've more than one & for different reasons. Willows were definitely NOT native, but at the ranch we had ONE lone willow tree planted by my mother, near the house where it could get some excess water, which wasn't plentiful, but she was never wasteful and made sure every drop was put to stages of use. I admired its tenacity which I share abundantly; and it was in its limbs I sat when I was 10 and watched the rural electric lines finally coming over the rough terrain to give us that luxury out there. That it provided perspective for better things is something I like to think I do at times.
In Del Rio, where we lived during the school year - pecan trees were prized and thrived, due to a generous spring which watered the otherwise desert terrain. I loved them for their shade which protected from the fierce sun and for their delicious nuts which enhanced our food. Its ability to provide where provisions are scarce inspires me.
My prize now in Dallas is a magnolia, planted by my beloved step-son when he was 7. It's glossy leaves and gorgeous fragrant flowers express my strong senses of beauty.s
Others I might mention are the lowly but valuable mesquite which grows naturally at the ranch; - but its full of self-protective thorns in a place where those are needed. I can exhibit that trait. But it bears bean-pods which not only assure its survival but feed the wildlife. Wild persimmons also feed the wildlife.
In Indiana where I once lived, its state tree, the Tulip Tree, bears a flower which is such a thing of beauty, it seems other-worldly when encountered in the native woods. I have a bit of other-worldly aura, too. George called is 'minxy'.
I identify with all of these, I guess. I can't choose 'just one' & there are others I could easily add, but won't. Maybe this inclusiveness illustrates my versatility & independence: - the fact that I refuse to be 'boxed in' or limited where I'm not!! :-)
What a lovely question.
If I could dream myself up as a tree
an exquisite mountain ash I'd be
shaped by searching winds, limbs
awkward and rugged yet inviting
to all birds, from vultures to a wren.
High up on a random crag, open
to sun and rain I'd have views
rare and visionary. This I'd choose
out of all those glorious trees.
This thought my stress frees.
Sorry! Got carried away. I do love trees (I've a tree poem hub, and others)
A very interesting question! I think I would like to be a Madrone tree (arbutus).
They are nice small to medium sized evergreen trees that have lbeautiful bell shaped white flowers in Spring and red fruits in Summer. They have a handsome shaggy red bark and a nice canopy which inspire artists and attract songbirds and wildlife. What a lovely legacy!
I am a palm tree because they are always on some beautfiul island and near water. I think it's time for a vacation.
