Roots Intertwined


Maybe we were trees
in our former life:

side by side,
roots deeply tangled,
branches barely touching,
and when the moon
performed its sonata
our leaves sang
the same melody.

and runaways
found a safe haven
from our shelter

Seasons changed,
people changed,
yet we were always
growing together
in love and beauty

side by side.

Perhaps then
we decided that
we would be poets
in this life,
growing together
in love and beauty.

seasons have changed,
people have changed,
and even we are no longer the same

our roots still lie
in fertile soil.
