Twisting and aged, the bark of an old tree in the forest spirals upward. Title is inspired by Walt Whitman.
Roots and leaves themselves alone are these;
Scents brought to men and women from the wild woods, and from the pond-side,
Breast-sorrel and pinks of love-fingers that wind around tighter than vines,
Gushes from the throats of birds, hid in the foliage of trees, as the sun is risen;
Breezes of land and love-breezes set from living shores out to you on the living sea to you, O sailors!
Walt Whitman. Roots and Leaves Themselves Alone. (l. 1-5) 1900.
