I love trees; I love my olive trees; my trees; have feelings; when I stand; on the ground; with their roots; under my feet
we feel each other
our roots
hold strong
and silently
in the earth
no one
will move us
my trees
are one
and eight
years old
my trees
are like
my children
I couldn’t live
without them
I eat the olives
the oil
the seeds
become beads
the wood
heats my house
the leaves
