just the trees

        just the trees
        not much else, really
        just rough trunks
        and the wind in the leaves

        I suppose there was grass
        or a carpet of pine needles
        and filtered sunshine
        some gentle breeze

        but what I remember was
        just the trees
        looking up, up
        higher than the sky
        and walking among them
        your laughter at my side
