The Intricacies of Mangroves

Splayed out like veins from wrist to hand

like neurons transmitting in the body

or spacetime in the cosmos

An elaborate (sinuous) network, arrangement

from dampened sodden earth

to root to trunk to canopy

The muted sky shines white

through the bored holes in the leaves

they dance ever so slightly

to the rythm of July

And the mangroves below intertwine

like so many fingers

in a connection

nature respite

so divine
