Roots

What is it about roots

That tug our hearts.

Makes us go weak

In our knees.

Brings smiles to the face

And tears to the eyes.

What is it about the quest

To know where we come from

To the place we identify ourselves with

The place that most resonates with “home”.

Why does it become more pronounced

As we grow older.

Does that place gives us the connect

With mother earth, the place in the vast universe

Where we are or were some body.

Where this whole journey started

And is it in that place that

We want to end our journey?
