I planted a plant once…

Clematis or Rhizome

While we aspire to reach for the stars,
stretching to the sun, everyone a clematis,
it is the humble rhizome spreading
insidiously beneath the dirt, poking up
here and there, and there, and there
to glimpse the light, refresh just so briefly
to continue, submerged, intertwining and
crisscrossing invisibly that explains how
most of us survive on this spinning ball.
