Climbing a tree

To sit on a tree,
in the cozy shade of the leaves.

To ponder on life at 7 and 3,
all the things one could be.

Perspective is all the things that they see,
from the top of a tree.

This is what it must be
to not have a care
to be free.

Only if you climb a tree.

To my children, who love climbing trees. To the tree in our cul de sac which hosts my children almost daily, where they hold "secret" meetings with their friends. 

To my own childhood and days spent lounging on various trees.
