Growing: Latenight Poetry

The plant defies gravity when it grows,
branching its roots in the dirt.
And we have no idea
how deep these roots go into the ground.
Who watered it?
Who ploughed around it?
We notice its sprouting.
We notice its sprouting
and marvel at how the plant can defy gravity.
What about the journey that took place before that?
