I am roots. I am strength. I take the disordered thoughts of the day and bury them below the surface.

I am roots. I am strength. I take the disordered thoughts of the day and bury them below the surface. I shoot currents of energy into the ground to encircle the accumulated daily cruft. Over time, my roots turn these thoughts into dense nuggets, little pockets of intensity. Years later, when a traveler sticks her hands below the surface she finds glittering jewels.
