Twin Oaks

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.
