Lone Cedar


There’s an old cedar tree in our yard.  She stands at the water’s edge – on the “point” of our property. 

 I wonder how many sunsets she has seen?

How many nor’easters?

How many hurricanes?

How many snowstorms?

She’s been a guest at two weddings. This one in 2008.

And this one in 2009.

She’s watched countless boats pass by.

And, during a recent storm, she served as an anchor for our old wooden boat.

 Just in the last few years, she’s lost some branches here and there.  But I hope the elements will be kind to her.  I can’t imagine that point without her.
