Poetic conversation with Arboreal Advisor: “This poem evoked childhood memories, which floated unrooted, carrying a variety of sensational feelings with them that transported me back to my childhood in Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Pine tree (Pinus Halepensis) together with the magical golden light of the city, became the subject of these manifestations when transformed into Memory Bubbles.”
