Roots entwined - By Cliff Harvey

Roots, from tundra grown,
stretch and strain through frozen earth.
Un' reddened night skies of painted lights.

Through rocky earth and back,
to cool night.

Far away, locked close of heart,
where southern cross lights the dark.
A prodigal son is born
not so prodigal.

And in his heart
lies that tundra,
and those roots stretch
to anchor with fealty.

To his brother, my brother...
hearts locked like fists,
roots entwined.

From earth to sky,
holding me tight, yet letting me soar

And with time passing, so often away
and never so close.

With roots entwined. Brother
My brother.

[Written circa 2008 for my best friend]
