Author's note: I lived on a farm for a short while. One evening as I gazed over the countryside, I noticed this tall persimmon tree. It stood all alone, near a pond and overlooking an empty field. The thought stuck me, "You must be lonely, Mr. Persimmon tree." But the more I thought about it, the more I realized how wrong I was, for the tree gave me a different perspective. Later I wrote a poem and titled it "A Tree Perspective" . I hope you enjoy, Loyd
