The Roots

Poem

The Roots

All the roots know each other well -

Under the dark cover of earth

They play together ,

They talk to one another,

They eat and drink together,

They get rest together,

After a long, busy day.

Under the open blue sky

Smiling in the sunshine,

There are trunks, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits-

All of them are busy with themselves,

Sometimes happily bathing in spring sunshine,

Sometimes dancing and singing in summer evening -

Sometimes shivering in midwinter's chilly north wind .

Every branch knows

Every leaf knows

Every flower knows

Every fruit knows –

They all depend on the profound love

Flowing from the heart of the roots!
