The Tree’s Top

In response to Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #301 – TREETOP
The Big Tree in Orlando, FL approximately 400 years old

Two years old
I am sure the top of the tree
is definitely attainable

Ten years old
muscles and bones strong
midway up the treetop visible

Thirteen years old
I climb until I see the treetop
I reach for the summit

Tumbling over and over
children’s laughter ringing
in my ears – I fall

A vicious bully’s
trick defines the
rest of my life
