connecting roots.

Each trunk stands alone

But beneath the soil

Lies a web of tales 

Intertwined roots 

All weaving together 

Sharing stories of where they come from 

How they got here 

Stories of interconnectedness.

A network 

That grows in time 

Grows stronger 

In the darkness 

In the mud and between rocks. 

Extending far beyond

Reaching other trees 

Touching roots

Whispering “We are one.”

At the surface their trunks stand alone

But beneath the soil 

Where light is scarce 

They are one

Reaching out to one another

Pulling their roots closer 


Their foundation of life 

Is all the same.
