about this story

They sat frozen on a concrete floor, a laundry basket of forgotten denim resting behind them. They strain to remember a time of swaying weightlessness which is long since forgotten.

They do not move.

Wood, once vibrant and alive, is now coated in cloying paint the color of the sky and sun. They used to know the feeling of stretching and rising above the earth, surrounded by others. They used to know the sky's brightest blue and the warmth of the sun's light on their leaves.

Now they rest near a window, close enough to peer out and see a man-made wall of stone. There was once life here, but now cement replaces green and an American flag covers the path in which sunlight once streamed through their window.

They have become more useful to Earth's most destructive population as a structure to sit on, instead of a masterpiece to climb. We sit, but we do not climb.
As the wood grows drier and loses it's luster, it still clings to the memory of water. The warmth of a sunset and the breeze from the ocean.
