Wondering

“Wondering if it’s cold today.” mentions the oak
“I think it’s probably hot!” argues the poplar
“I think you’re probably crazy.”

“Then what do you think? Do you think it’s snowing?”
“That snow might be rain.”
“What about hail?”
“That only comes once in a while.”

“Wondering if I’m dying.” says the oak
“Why do you have to be so pessimistic?” sighs the poplar
“Everything is dying from the minute it is born, isn’t that ironic?”
“Do you even know what ironic is?”
“What does it matter when we’re dying?”

“I guess it doesn’t then”

“The sky is beautiful today.”
“How do you know, you can’t even see it.”
“No…” whispers the oak, “but I can feel it.”
“Alright then, I guess the sky is beautiful today.”
“Yes," laughs the oak, "yes it is.”
