veins of the earth

Winter Forest Jacque Hammond

Veins of the Earth
by Jacque Hammond

A forest of trees bare in winter –
Intricate lace-like beauty of branches,
Like veins, protruding from the earth.

Each tree, one asymmetrical journey to the sky,
Each branch, a glorious balancing act.

We, the forest, are but veins of the earth.

One trunk, many branches.
One direction, many paths.
