I am tree

What is a tree?
I asked a tree today.

“What are you tree?”
I am tree, the tree said.

“But what does that mean “I am tree”? How can I understand what it is to be a tree, how to be a good tree, how not to be a bad tree, how to be a strong tree … What is it I must be to be a tree?”
I am tree, the tree said.

“Tree, you must think me slightly mad. For I know you are a tree, but how can I experience what it means to be a tree? How can I know what you mean when you say “I am tree”? I wish to be a tree and yet I do not know how. I wish to be a fine, healthy, strong tree just like you – yet I must first know how. Dear tree, can you not see I wish to be you!”
I am tree, the tree said.

“Dear tree, you try my patience with your intransigence. I come here in good faith..[  ]
