  4. That was supposed to be "It does . . ," not "I does . . ." :-0

    1. Exactly, Elizabeth! That's what I see... especially when something or somebody frightens them because it is different from them and does not meet their expectations. Their "absolute truth" does not admit other truths.
      I dream of the day in which we can accept that we are all different and that we can still love and respect each other as we are.
      Thank you, Elizabeth.

  5. Julia, congrats on getting your poem published! “Boxes that refuse to understand the language of the trees,” I really love that line. The language of the trees is the language of freedom and acceptance; it cannot be confined by the closed, defined spaces of boxes. Such simple yet powerful metaphors in your poem. Just beautiful!

    1. Thank you, Jersey.
      Yes, that's what it is like. The language of the trees; the language of freedom and acceptance.
