Summer Thirst

They cover us with their fresh shade on sunny days,

they protect us from rain, hail and snow without asking for anything in return.


They guard our secrets,

they see us smile when we leave the house.

They rejoice with the sun

and laugh with the rain.


But for some months they cannot laugh despite their wishes.

The sun wants to claim all the lost time over the past months.

So they thirst…they beg for water.


I’m happy to hear their cry and comfort them while hearing them laugh again.


In the summer months, everyday I water two trees outside my house. One is a young maple tree and this is the second summer I’ve been watering it. The other one, a tiny little tree that was just planted by the city in the middle of the park.
