As I sat on the front porch, I felt something staring at me. I looked at the big tree near the patio steps, a face took form in it's bark and became clearer. I didn't hear a voice but I could sense it, telling me how sad all the trees had been since last Sunday. 'Hum,' I thought, looking at my forest and seeing all the trees covered with a coat of ice, some branches bent in an unusual way. The more I looked at the trees, the more I saw faces. One looked like a deer. Its branches made it look like it had antlers. 'It won't be long,' I told them, 'it will be sunny today'. Time passed, the rays of the sun fell on the top of the trees. As I saw shiny little droplets falling from the ice coated branches, I looked back at the face and said: 'You will soon be able to streach your limbs, old man, the sun has arrived'. As I went down the steps to see Rachel, I thanked Mother Nature for taking care of my forest.
Have a great day,
