Write a short short piece about this tree. You can do so using any method you desire. Perhaps it’s a poem bringing it to life? Maybe it is an origin story? Or perhaps it is the focus of a journey? Whatever the case may be, tell me a story.
A Writing Prompt
Published by Amber Porter
Amber Porter was born in Fort Carson, Colorado and has recently finished her bachelor’s in Psychology—with a minor in creative writing—from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. She loves writing, particularly: horror, fantasy, young adult, and humor and has a fascination with the darker and stranger side of life, it’s probably why she wanted to be a psychologist—to probe into the deepest most secluded areas of one’s psyche. Amber also enjoys learning about new cultures, particularly their languages, and hopes to one-day return to Italy where she spent several years of her childhood. As a side-note, she’s rather fond of video games—especially those with good characters and story—and getting lots and lots of sleep. View all posts by Amber Porter

“He is like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: it fears not the heat when it comes; in the year of drought it shows no distress.” (Jeremiah 17:5-8 (78 C) )

Thanks for the tip on not fearing heat – I don’t. I do, however, very much feel heat, demonstrated by the ruin of many sweat stained shirts.
Also not showing distress during drought, we must ‘agree to disagree.’ This fourth quarter, my stocks dried up considerably. As supplementary to an already meager pension, it’s hard not to stress out.
Maybe King David was more on point: “… that person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in due season.” (Psalm 1:1-6)
My tree is in Winter. Please, God, I am due a change of season.
