A Drawing Tree

A branch in a tree broke, but it didn’t fall off. It was hanging by the bark and a few wood fibers. As it swayed in the wind, it drew lines in the snow. If I had seen it a snowfall before it wouldn’t have been drawing because the snow would have been too low, and if I had seen it a snowfall later, the tips would have been buried in snow and immobilized.
