Tap Root

Tap root
6/20/2015 for Father’s Day with the whole family together to celebrate

When we burst forth from the womb,
we sink it down
into the homestead of our grandfathers
A new umbilical cord
Connection to the bones of old
A tap root to anchor generations to come
in the cocoon of life, earth, and death.

We are the trees
Running deep
Nurtured by the land
The land from which we grew
and to which we will return
with our wisdom,
our DNA,
our hummus,
the new children
who carry us with them
through the great cycle.

on Father’s Day
we are all together
Held by the family tap root
Held to the fields and barns and woods
Held as one great soul
knowing that eternity lies within us.
