Poem: Indigenous Creation

Rooted deeply into the Earth,
A wisdom of the soil,
A wisdom of truth,
How the roots connect with the Earth,
And the plant reaches and reaches,
Like our spirits reaching,
An indigenous creation to root deeply into the Earth,
Reach up to the spirit,
While being balanced in both.

Hi there

I miss your beautiful poetry! I hope you will post some more soon! My daughters and I loved your one page, forget which it is now but had the article where you talk of the 'how native are you?' question. Hope to see more of your posts
