The Bonding

Mark Renz words and photo (palm frond resembling an anhinga)

Did trees, which evolved before birds

know ahead of time

what their feathery Earth mates

would become?

Did they help shape the bird's wings

from thin fronds blowing in the wind?

And then watch them as they flew

realizing they would need a place to land?

And did they further know that roots and wings

would eventually bond together

so the two of them

would always be close

and never know loneliness?
