Trees Dance

by Alan S. Garrett

Trees dance within my mind.
From the seeds of atoms to the branches of molecules,
From tree roots spoon fed by mycorrhizal fungi to the nuts that feed a variety of animals, including the genetic line of the tree itself.
From single cells to the myriad multicellular life forms,
From a nerve cell’s nucleus to the dendrites and across the synapses.
From a thought to a story,
From ideas to ideologies,
Trees dance within my mind.
What an underlying structure to behold!
