Trees dreaming of man dreaming of trees

My soul splits open
as i dig feet into loam
setting down roots
anchoring my life
the bones of my feet
become the bones of the earth
roots to nourish my soul
as I reach for the heavens
 
slowly day by day  
reaching higher
for the welcoming  
embrace of the sky
my spirit soars
branching out  
in all directions at once
 
I learn of frost and cold
drought and fire
winds and storm
and the damage  
little insect minds can do
boring holes in my skin
to poison and choke my spirit
 
yet the heavens still beckon
I spread my limbs  
welcoming the universe  
of warmth and passion
love and acceptance
the energy of heaven and earth
are one within me
 
I now stand tall
a bulwark against the storm
strong yet flexible
to bend instead of break
my life so easily read  
of lose and suffering  
growth and renewal
all within the rings of my soul
