TreeRoot (to my Loves)


Walking

tripping

over you

like a

root

you brought

me

to my

knees

wondering

why I

stumbled

I

cleared

away

debris

and

studied

you

your

roots

led

to your

trunk

and

there

you

were

above

me

sturdy

green

and

spanning

the

heavens

shading

me

from

rain

and

sun

protecting

me

from

a

harsh

world
