Yggdrasil…

YggdrasilHis life
this whole grande existence
spreading out the great boughs
of the choices he has made
his wants and needs are buried
far under the soil at the roots
watered with blood and tears
to produce this arboreal icon
of his love for them
this massive tree
powerful and strong
and tearing
right through the center
of his heart
