A cheerful tree-hug this morning off the trail.
Arms outstretched a joyful tree-woman welcomed me. Her deeply-textured bark-dress long and flowing.
The rich trunk-moss was warm and luxurious to touch. Each day the snow cover a little less.
A friendly neighboring tree-greeter popped out to make sure I saw him.
Some happy bark-beings admired their smooth-rock neighbors.
While a clear-sighted tree-goddess pointed the way ahead. Message: Welcome with gratitude the simple joys of life. Follow the signs of light. Warm hearted friends abound. Peace
