-roots & reasoning-

No matter how common
The sense is
For a tree to start
walking, if only a few steps,
just to make
for something good
like a bird bath, or
to allow a sapling sunlight,
the moving still
does violence to the roots
not made for moving but for growing deeper.

And yes, recovery will come along
by threads within and green above
an almost-imperceptible re-learning
to trust the earth you're in.
