Moments in Your Life 

I walked home late last night, and the streets of DC were basically empty. As I stood across the street from my building waiting for the light to change, I looked up and noticed that the tree on the corner looked gigantic and majestic in the silence and electric light. The leaves were all yellow like a sports car, and dangling like a willow tree, so they shuffled lightly in the unseasonably warm breeze. I stood there and enjoyed it, for I knew that that sort of thing wouldn't last more than a day or two.

I walked home from work just now and noticed that they'd cut the tree down today.
