  Two TreesThere was a tree.
A tree without leaves, not dead, but with many needles.
Not for pricking but to protect itself against acid rain and scorching sun.
A tall tree which radiated an imperturbable calm in summer and winter.
Deeply rooted in the earth and high risen to the sky.
There was another tree.
Completely different. Even the bark indeed playfully spotted black and white.
And it wore leaves that played constantly moving with the sunrays.
As soon as the short summer was over, the leaves turned yellow and brown.

In the shadow of old birch treeHe walked down the street silent as the dream. Eventually he reached park full of old trees. Lights made streets bright and prevent inhabitants from seeing stars. People were not interested in starts or skies above, but in their own, boring everyday life. Unfortunately, no one noticed tall man in a long, dark jacket.  
Children are afraid of the dark no without the reason, but when grow up they learned to call instincts “primitive fears from the barbarian period” as modern psychology tended to say. They are turning off voices telling them to avoid dark and unknown. How anyone can be afraid of the dark if we have nuclear weapon and mathematic formulas to reduce the variability?
Man in the dark coat by now way fitted to great city concentrated of boring, everyday life. He came from places none of mannish languages or psychics by Newton were able to describe. He visited words full of shapes and forms unknown to humans, as skies full of singing stars and speaking clouds. H
