Joined Here Together

Like us, trees are never alone.

They stand in clusters, or solitary

yet joined to earth and sky. They

reach for eternity, high

and low, a miracle not rent

by tension. No. They simply grow

in opposite directions, down

into dark mysteries of soil

and up to breathe the breath of God.

Like trees, we are bound together:

root, branch, seed.
