Conversations in the Garden

Me: (Stands and watches) Those branches are so magnificent though. Do they really have to be cut away?

He: (Stops and looks at me with a grin) They are indeed beautiful. But right now, they could only grow this much. (Looks a little more intently at me) Yet if I trim them a little, they would extend that much more out.

Me: (Puts hand on tree thoughtfully, looking up still) It looks painful though. I mean imagine cutting off pieces of me.

He: (Laughs, then looks at me with that look in his eyes) Well, I suppose it might hurt a little; that’s how it goes right now, I’m afraid. But look beyond this temporary discomfort, because the final outcome will be a masterpiece.

I believe it will be. 🙂
