River Roots by Jennifer Phillips

River Roots by J Phillips

Roots exposed
ready to walk
tangled in the rush
to escape the river flood.
on the boulder
still clasped by the tree
still clinging to pebbles
                        and sand.
Broken fingers cry out
                    for the land
while trees of the land
thirst for the stream
as the heat
sucks away
at the age of
the dream

... the anchor holds
             and molds.
