Winter was about to take over. Her attention was on the old cherry tree. She felt grateful for the beauty of this majestic tree. In spring she was the bride of the garden with her abundant white blossom, so glorious and virgin-like.
Take a piece of the exhibition home with you...
Having tea in the garden when the weather was warm enough while admiring her white beauty became sweet moments of joy and magic to her. The honeymoon lasted for only a week. Then the tree would let go of her splendour to bless the garden with her blossom with every breeze of wind. The little white leaves would whirl down and around in the garden like delicate confetti as if there was a true garden party going to celebrate early spring, very delightful to watch.
The neighbours did not share her sentiments about the tree. The neighbours on the right complained about the branches reaching to far and coming over the fence into their garden.
They wanted to prune the branches, to which she did not agree and could prevent for some years. When coming home one day she saw they actually did it and it felt to her like sincere amputation. She would have loved branches like that coming into her garden, no matter where they would come from.

The lady living on the left side complained that every spring the blossom caused a lot of mess and the roots of the tree reached into her garden and caused the tiles of her terrace to come up. One time the lady proposed to remove the whole tree. What a pity that they preferred seeing the tree as a problem instead of enjoying her gifts.
She as well as the cherry tree had not been bothered by it too much and so the bridal ceremony had traditionally taken place every year in April. A few weeks after the fall of the blossom, the tree was covered with a blanket of fresh green leaves, providing a green roof that would turn the garden into an airy room.

This way the tree had changed from spring bride to patroness during warm summer days. The cherries were a feast for the birds and her leaves and branches had provided shelter for many chicks to be safe in their nest and to fly out into the world when the time had come. Autumn turned her appearance into a sea of golden, copper and bronze. Leaves fragile wobbling on their branches to fall and rotting in the damp garden soil.
This year a last yellow leaf seemed to hang on to its branch for an exceptional long time. It was there all by itself for almost a week now. Intuitively she knew that when this leave would let go to surrender to wintertime, her time had come too to let go of her life.
She looked at the wrinkled skin of her hands, pale and spotted. She looked at the fragile reflection in the window that was smiling at her. She became thinner each day but she did not care. We cannot do without you. The others had agreed by nodding. And that was it; she was dying and they felt sad. Especially for them selves and what it meant for them to miss her. Although she understood their way of thinking and saw how they were caught up in their own world, it was also part of the reason why she felt she could not really share with them what she was going trough while preparing herself for the event of her death.
Despite that she did not feel lonely. She herself through out the years had become her best company. Questions that need answers My Posts.
