Lazarus Roots 

These are ancient wars
we've been born into;
they aren't anything
we haven't known

nor are they ever really
comprehended by
any of us

yet rather than
take that walk
into the forest
to learn what we
need to know about
the root of all things

we just keep
what would be best
laid to rest
amid the roots
of the Mother tree.
for Ukraine
