I am Rooted

by SoAngieWrites.com

Looking back in my mind
Digging deep in my memory
Finding spaces which speak solace
Times of interconnectedness, profound
I am curious

Happiest visions of big open sky
Trails of starlight and
Fingers of electricity
It needed to be seen, just like me
I was small

The tumultuous waves of coastal water
A crashing of tide and
The breaking of life around me
I screamed to the ocean, “Hear me now!”
I was brave

Washed up on a creek bank
Slippery moss rocks and
Single shoes swept downstream
My blood churned as well, veined momentum
I was determined

We sought Mountains Majesty
A mile high and
The way of being with trees
I lift my eyes to the tallest places and sigh
I am rooted
