Twin oak trees, grown together over years,
provided sheltering arms for each other
while homing nesting bird-life every Spring.
They withstood storms and drought together.
Roots exposed by erosion and wind-drift
reveal how closely their lives intertwined
as animal families built homes within the roots.
