Arboriculture

Starting small, saplings, seedlings
subjected young to human plans dreaming,
boxed and hemmed in ways and streets
cut and pruned our ways to meet.
With long years unplanned they rise,
growing higher, girthing wide;
one day outgrow our old designs,
life their own roots take in stride,
our malformed plans to cast aside
