for bonnie, on her birthday

“what does it take to make us stand together as if we just grew that way?”

roots deep down

into the earth

reaching out

connected, bound up together


trunks, in postures of integrity

standing upright

knowing who they are

whose they are

branches growing, always

seeking and giving

light and life

in love

offering shelter and nourishment

a canopy above and below

and all of this


in relation knowing and living

i am because we are

life running through and between us

welcoming the flow, the dance
