I am a fairly new writer so I am very open to any sorts of feedback!
Your observation that the trees are companions is not something a lot of people notice or think about -- an interesting observation.
There isn't much tension, although complexity is evident in the way the narrator appears lonely while the trees are all among friends.
I construe that the narrator is lonely. She returns at least once to the forest to listen to the trees conversing amongst each other. I would like to see this piece expanded to know how the narrator reacts to the friendship of the trees. Will she continue merely to watch wistfully, or will she plant a tree in her own garden? will she speak to the trees in her desperation? will she pretend they speak to her? etc. I would like to know also whether the narrator's conflict will be resolved, and if so, how.
Your writing is clear and concise and your perspective is fresh. I like your implication that friendship is such an innate necessity that it is evident even in the most commonplace nature on Earth.
Good day, Mary.
I think this piece would benefit if you continued it, at least so that readers can conjecture the fate of the narrator.
Overall, you've done a good job. Thank you for sharing, and have a nice day, Mary!
