Center's Pull

Opening to earth's call
I sink downward
as my toes grip the ground
with an intention of their own
as if they forgot
gravity is already
pulling them
into the center of the earth
rooted and splayed
absorbing energy

so I can rise again
like the trees.

And become evergreen or deciduous or a permanent sapling.

Tree being!

The Dream of the Rood? One of the earliest written poems from the perspective of the tree.
