the struggles of a citrus tree

When I moved into my apartment on the upper-end of the Greifensee many years ago, my life was in a bit of a turmoil.  A brisk change of direction on a few main construction areas in life, but the tree never whined.

At the beginning it caught the plague

and all sorts of bugs and glue got stuck to the ground

then no more fresh green leaves were seen for months

then years..

I cropped it down as far I could and left an empty piece of wood.

For a short while, I thought it died

The big pot of earth and a stubby sturdy stem within

was used to place some pretty plants above to show

how beautiful a tree could be.

Oh yes, some fertilizer did I leave

as natural as God would please..

Not long at all, new twigs grew on

and on

and on

it hasn’t stopped to sprout since then

this sturdy little citrus tree.
