“this tree stands lonely here in the mountains; it grew high above man and beast . And if it wanted to speak it would have nobody who could understand it, so high has it grown. Now it waits and waits-for what is it waiting? It dwells too near the seat of the clouds: surely it waits for the first lightning.” –
Is this not what man has achieved? a lonely expression, abandoned by all civilization merely waiting until its end.
Sorry for the depressing pretext. It is merely an illustration, a metaphor for loneliness? maybe my interpretation is all wrong. I do accept dialogue and constructive criticism.
