It is hot and humid.

I am alone at home watching the tree across the apartment. My eyes could not help but look. It is very tall and skinny tree. I see it every time I looked outside. It stood strong in the middle of the thunderstorm, endured the burning heat of the sun, fought against strong wind blows and surpassed dark lonely nights.

I noticed that it doesn’t even even have a fruit or a flower. It is just a lonely tree in the middle of high-rise buildings waiting for years to come.

I could not help but think, what if this tree acted like human? It would question its purpose. Why it had to live without a flower? Why it would never bear fruits? Why it had to be tall and skinny?

If it ceases to wait for the sunshine? Will it ever find its purpose?

To my surprised, a raven dropped a flower from the balcony where I was sitting before it flew back to the tree. I found myself smiling.

I thought, what a beautiful day!
