The Tree in the Dark

Written and illustrated by C. Fulsty

It’s so dark that no one can see.

Someone is crying, oh wait, it’s a tree.

Oak is sad and always in the dark.

Oak is crying all over its bark.

Oak is in the dark all night and day.

Oak wants the dark to just go away.

Oak sees the moon swim through the sky.

The moon chases the light. I wish I could try.

Oak asks, “Does the dark make you sad?”

Moon says, “It does just a tad.”

“I try to keep hope of seeing the light.

I tell myself, ‘You’ll make it through tonight.’”

“I should try that.” Oak says with a huff.

“Looking for the light is just really tough.”

Moon smiles down, “I have advice, but it’s cheesy.”

“Turn around, even if it’s not easy.”

Oak decides to listen to what moon said.

Now Oak needs to move its roots and its head.

Oak yanks all its roots from the ground.

Oak’s doing it, Oak is spinning around.

Oak is moving away from the dark.

Oak is feeling the light on its bark.

Sometimes it’s hard to see the light,

But if you work hard at it, your life will get bright.
