Rural Roots

Day 89 prompt: City or Town
A cascade of roots

as a teen I left the farm
for the big city of
jobs and pavement

made a full happy life
in urbia and suburbia
remarkably content

sights and smells and sounds
still pull at my rural roots
airing where I’ve been

respectfully I tamp them
in this fertile urban ground
so they can grow again
