Lost Shade 2/17/2012

Trees with X’s and arrows…

orange paint signals the end.
Arborist decision to remove
from further seasons…
ice storm damage speeds
natural process of decay.
Life cycle shortened by an orange
symbol sprayed on bark…
this summer’s sun will burn ,
its heat will melt asphalt,
neighbors will mourn lost shade…
