The Whacking of the Trees

It was all she could do for her heart and her soul

 

Whack! 

Whack!

There was a long pause and then, once again...

Whack!

She tossed the fallen limb down onto the forest floor beside the trail. It had served its purpose.

Then she nodded at the hikers who were passing hesitantly by her along the pathway. 

This was the last time. The latest results showed no sign of cancer. Perhaps not gone. But no sign.

It was good enough. She was putting aside the tree whackers for now.

There was always time to start again in the future. 

It was all she could really do for her soul. 

It was enough.
