Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees,
and then names the streets after them.
I think of all the things that the tornado took, I miss the trees the most. Our brick streets used to be canopied by old trees. I miss the school, the church, and the old houses, but they are all being rebuilt. I won't live to see the trees grow large enough to canopy our streets once more. They've been planted. I know they are there. Someday our barren town will be shaded and charming once more. We've planted for future generations, and I hope they grow to love the trees as much as I do or as much as I did.
