Trees

I heard a story of the trees on this island

Hiding in plain sight

Centuries ago

When one tree knew its friend is dying

It fused itself to the other

Sharing the same earth, wind and water

They grew together

Twins fused in time

Wrapped around the same dirt

Breathing the same air

Living a single life fused

Siamese twins

Sans the two minds

Wish we all lived like that

Under our single sky

No me and you

No us and them

People living together

A single all consuming organism

One Earth for all of us

All oceans under our embrace

The winds our messenger

Each soul saving another in need

For no reason at all
