Rooted

Decaying Discoloured Brown Leaf Free Stock Photo - Public Domain Pictures


I looked up and watched several leaves float down from the sky. They were falling in real time from very tall trees.

“They’ve never been untethered before,” I thought with some sadness, because for some reason, I tend to anthropomorphize things. I watched them fall to the ground.

I kept walking and pondered how intertwined root systems existed underneath my feet, unseen as I walked along this pathway with trees on either side.

Sometimes, we’re more connected than we think we are.
