Conversation with a Lark

I’ve been talking to trees for years. They teach me about life. When I asked about humans a while ago, the tree I was talking to shut down. I’ve tried several other trees since then. It’s like throwing an off switch. They go silent.

Two weeks ago I met a lark tree in Switzerland.
”We don’t talk to humans about humans. No tree will do this,” it said.
”Why?” I asked.
”Perhaps Mount Rakmun will talk to you,” said the lark, told me where I could find her and went silent.

 

“”What do you call that tree?” asked the foreigner.
“Beautiful,” answered the native in the local tongue.
The foreigner nodded. The native smiled.”
