Roots. Day 7 Discover prompts, ‘Below’

Below the ground.

Roots seem to merely lie.

After all roots are invisible.

They are sometimes colourful, but mostly take on the dull brown of the earth.

What point in paying attention to roots?

Of course roots are everything

They speak of your past, which affects your present and your future

You may wish to escape your roots or put down new roots of your own, different roots from your parents, friends, relatives, you may strive to improve your situation

Or you may learn from your own errors through living wild and free and not keeping still, not putting down roots.

Still, I’ve noticed that this tree remains rooted in the ground, here, exactly in this place, where it was planted or where it seeded itself, either way, both ways surfice.

Each season, this tree springs to life and sustains and I wonder whether that is simply a result of putting down roots

And the birds sing like never before
