I Hear Voices

The voices of my roots are mellow
-sometimes shrill
I sense their reverberations in my bones,
a call for guidance,
whether or not
to grow up, up all around me,
crawl around my frame,
tiptoe across my neck
Or to grow deep into the earth,
sturdy and confident,
grounded by the force of my love.

Do you hear that?
“Tell us where to go.”
