between boulders grows a sinewy tree -- robust by ordeals
sinuous roots of the silk-cotton tree; are they moving?
a web of fig roots drapes in wild tangles, & a sapling - straight & green
nestled between rocks the smooth-worn driftwood roots assume the form of a pile of writhing snakes, 'til the mind untangles truth
roots sprawl, sinuously creeping. what's it like to hold so firm and reach so far?
