To be Rooted


image

I forgot how good it feels to be rooted.
And to be rooted
is not the same
at all
as being
tied down.

To be rooted is to say,
here I am nourished
and here
will I grow,
for I have found
a place
where every sunrise
shows me how to be
more
than what I was
yesterday,
and
I need not
wander
to feel the
wonder
of my beginning.

And when
you are
rooted,
defending that
space ceases
to be an
obligation
or
a duty
and
becomes more
of a
desire.
