Oxygen

Most days you forget.

There is always so much to do & before you know it you are busy doing the countless everyday things

that make your life narrow

& mundane.

 

But if you remember

to look out the window, up & over the roofs, beyond the rows of neatly manicured lawns & suburban hedges

there they are:

higher than houses & older still

 

Tall

Tall

Trees.

 

Just looking at them

releases air into your chest & suddenly you can breathe again.

You did not realise how tense & small & cramped you were until you remembered to look

 

Up

at the

Trees.
