The tree that walked

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I saw this.


I pointed it out to the tall person and asked him why this tree had legs. He smiled and told me that it did seem unusual.

I suggested to the tall person that perhaps the tree had been unhappy living in a forest and decided to grow legs so that it could walk to a better place.

The tall person agreed and said that sometimes it is difficult to see the wood for the trees and it becomes necessary to remove yourself from a situation.

I didn’t understand that and asked him why the tree decided to come and live here by the side of a road in a city.

The tall person smiled and said that all journeys finish somewhere.

  1. that surely is a puzzle. lf it was a very big tree it might have grown other leg to balance it up

  2. It probably wanted to be a message tree. Where it is now, I’m sure there are lots more dogs around to send and receive messages on it.

  3. I hope this tree was not ostracised in the woods because it is a tripod-tree. It is more possible that it wanted to see life and will someday go back to the forest and tell about its adventures.
