Roots and Wings
by Auna Ravn
Age Group: Adult
I live with both roots and wings.
They are necessary for my survival.
Contradictions within the greater whole
Ensure tension, rupture and revival.
I cannot fly,
My feet are bound.
They send their tendrils strong and deep
in mariage with the ground.
Though my roots are deep, I'm compelled to fly;
My wings just won't lie still.
They flap to find a gust of wind
And obey their ancient will.
I could rot into the ground
Or wither from lack of Earth.
I may also tear myself in two:
Tension, rupture and rebirth.
