Rotten from the weather this tree dies alone.
Unlike the others as it leans to the side and it has that duel color that trees have when they had there turn.
It’s the only tree that withers like this and still stands.
Leaves gone, dried up and crumbled in the dirt like its cried.
The others are all green, yellow and red.
There all shaped, made, and grow the same but, this tree is the odd ball out of the rest.
The extinct center that dies but, lives.
Branchless and gone, it’s just a stick in the ground with some roots to help it stand.
Disintegrating branches that have fallen on the ground.
This tree didn’t last long and soon the nutrients will return to the soil.
