Along the River banks they lurk.
The Ancient ones of Earth
They whistle, watch and smirk
At all Humanity’s civic work.
They often wonder at the worth
Of cutting all their fellow Trees
That once swayed here in the breeze.
I certainly see a tree root casually watching and whistling. I wondered just what it was thinking. This Photograph was taken along the Mississippi River at Harriet Island. This is an undoctored image. The root actually looks like that. The City in the background is St. Paul which is directly across the river.
