Image for the poem Evergrown

Evergrown

Spinal frond    
visibly unfolding    
as an indispensable      
essence of Being      
     
Its pelvic basin      
of blood and bone      
Holy os sacrum—      
Soul's    
arterial seating    
     
Roots extend      
anchoring      
to burn        
in the earthen      
kingdom      
below      
     
Imperishable stars      
ornately crown      
its heavenly      
kingdom      
above      
     
Our cerebellum      
a centered revelation;      
an arbor vitae      
of white matter      
(r)evolving      
     
Thus each moment      
we are becoming      
neither light nor dark      
befalling    
     
But as the tree—      
ever-growing      
     
~
Ahavati
