Poetic Interlude… Synergy

You roll your feet
Imagine roots
Dug down deep
Searching heat at the core
It would warm you from the
Inside out
A perpetual fire

Stretch fingers to the sky
Soak in rain
Call sunshine down to hungry hands
To meet fire with fire
Co-mingle and spread
Become a divinity

You think it must be easy
Roots to dirt
Branches to sky
Nourishment above and below
You forget drought
Forget the edge of the axe
Forget rot and blight and fire

Forget to look deeper
To see clearly
To witness how little difference lies
Between roots and feet
Between branches and fingers
