I've admired you every day for weeks. Standing tall, forcing us to behold your beauty, take a moment to see that some things are just..good. Perfect. You are one of my favourite parts of my day, and I never, ever fail to stop and look at you, and smile a little smile.
I saw them today. Cutting back your branches. I know they had to. I know you were in a position to do damage, disrupt power lines.
But I looked at your branches, broken on the ground.
I haven't stopped crying. I don't think it's just for you.
