Roots dig into the ground
They extend and intertwine
Like lovers locked in a secret embrace
As their secrets spill
Up from the ground
A trunk emerges
Its confidence secured
By the branches that extend
Out from the whole
Some are frail
Some are robust
Most are as nimble as fingers
With leaves adorning the edges.

Some may look
And see only a tree
When what’s really there
Is something much greater
It is a complicated dance with nature
It is a testament of love between forces
A safe haven for dreamers
With hopes and desires
Bubbling underneath the surface
As roots intertwine
Lovers embrace
Like magnetic forces pulled together
Reaffirming the strength of the whole.
