Mother Pine dressed in vines
you have sheltered the young
surrounding your base,
nourishing them, connecting them
to the magic mycelium maze
Intertwining your roots.
We do not know who will survive
But we will cherish each moment of life.
These young pine trees and their mother grow in a park near the senior center. I don’t know what will happen to the young trees, but it made me smile to see them growing in a semicircle around the base of the mother tree on a gray February afternoon.
