#WritePhoto – Rooted

Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt.

Looking at this and seeing the roots of two trees all exposed and entwined, I thought of my Finndian family: Indian and Finnish. Both sets of roots that are extremely deep, yet both their teachings are visible in my Finndian nephews. It sparked the inspiration for a haiku.

    The last line is fantastic. 🙂 I can imagine the roots on the image according to the action during the visit of your nephews too. 😉 Best wishes, Michael
