Craft--Writing Prompt/The Crabapple Tree
I had dinner on Friday night with one of the Margies in my profile, a childhood friend with whom I had spent many a lazy summer afternoon playing games of jacks, rescuing injured birds and climbing the gnarled limbs of the crabapple tree that straddled the boundary of our backyards. We kids in the neighborhood had named every branch; it was a place to hold "meetings" or hide with a book.
Take a tree--outside your window or buried in your memory. Create a scene in which it stands at the center.
