Their Tree Of Life - Poem by Andrew Sean H

with their backs against a tree, they leaned in looking
up-wards - paused
in lieu of each others silence, out of respect for
what each other now sought.

how far do the roots of such trees grow he thought-
what songs do the birds sing from these branches,
she wondered.

she imagined further of the birds, and when they leave for the sky,
do they hear their song echo, or see a direction of light...

he considered the ground, the feel and need of
roots and the rocks-
what minerals to draw, what water to find.

now, with their essence of thought&being conjoined,
in a ring in and around their tree-
leafs and buds will continue to grow, fall, fertilize
and spreadseed... their happened alliance -
a symbol now of growth into eternity.
