Imitation of trees

If we imitate trees, 

our roots grow long. 

They reach for the center of the Earth.  

There in the mystery of primordial clay 

we are nourished. 

We learn secret languages 

that aren’t spoken on the surface:  

tectonic rumbles and mycelial conversations interweave.  

Our eyes adjust to the darkness 

and glow like opals, diamonds, rubies, amethyst 

onyx, fire.  

Our ears become fuzzy and soft like field mice.  

Our skin brown or grey or mineral like rock.

And our arms stretch for the sky

and learn the language of the milky way:


—Lorena (2016)
