Barring invasive species,
plants will work together
to make the most effective
and efficient use of the
resources allotted. Heads
intertwine to create diverse
canopies, while stems sacrifice
leafy runs to enable the nestling
of neighbors’ branches, and they
in turn their stems, and so on.
The heavy soak of apocryphal rain
brings a florid melange of nutrient.
Roots intermingle, with fungi forms
mycorrhizal, to shuttle about the
essential elements of life. This all
takes place in the yellowest of sunlight,
in the winds that blow eternity steady.
