I'm glad I touched you! Although, the word 'alone' can mean many different things, to me, looking at this image, it's like the tree is trying to grasp the bird so it's not left behind. Maybe it wanted the crow's comforting presence because its the only warm and living being in its area. Heh, I'm surprised it made me think so much, but that's the great thing about art! One's perspective is always different than the original idea.
