Loneliness had found me.

People and things would no longer do.

So I walked into the woods,

and started talking to the trees.

And one day they spoke back to me.

"Welcome cousin. Welcome back, welcome home.

We have missed you and have been waiting for so long".

Nice! Simple, mystical, interesting. I like it!

I had an observation/question while reading though. What was the reason behind the trees saying the same thing 3 different ways? I thought this might be a small character development note of the trees but I don't know. I am curious what the purpose was.

Otherwise, nice work.

They say trees talk to each other, maybe we should listen to them.
