White Birch

This White Birch tree lives by the Scarborough Bluffs in the Harrison Properties at the edge of Lake Ontario. I have watched it age ever since we moved to Birch Cliff eighteen years ago. I wonder if the birch also sees me aging as I walk by on my way to Rosetta Gardens.

    So dear Emanuel, you too talk with trees and find inspiration from them. We are kindred spirits as we experience the passage of time and find comfort in the way even an old tree supports new life and renewal. May it ever be so in us.

    Emanuel: the white of the bark and the snow, the blue of the lake, and the goodness of the man who walks in wonder and gives them their due.

    That’s how the milk tree looks like. It has an open crown.
