For example, loneliness.
A field, the sky, a lonely tree is standing.
You look at it – there is one growing.
Why one? Why in the middle of the field? Is there a mystery here?
Why not in the forest with the rest of the trees? Not even a bush around it. There’s a tree in the field among the grass. Well, it just stands there.
In spring it blooms with luxuriant flowers. And so beautiful! That tree doesn’t care what you think. Alone or not. Lives its own life.
Leaves fall in autumn, in spring it is covered with flowers, in winter it stands, beautiful all in snow, in summer it gives shade.
You can lean against it and rest. Is this loneliness?
