I enjoy constructive criticism. Thank you for reading.
“Know yourself and you will know the world.”
Yggdrasil [f. ON (Yggr Odin, drasill horse)] This according to the Oxford Reference Dictionary, published in 1986.
Map of life this tree. Tree entirely tree itself, self-absorbed. Tree’s only concern to grow from life to Light. Life itself, the host of life, probably aware, necessarily detached.
Common enough, the Ash, in Europe, in Africa, all over the world. The World Tree. Rare in its ability to grow where none other would keep. Isolation in this instance unconscious adaptability. Flexibility its strength to hold to essential, urged, determination to Live.
Roots struck deep, unseen. Mythological implication, yet it is known. It is Life it draws from underground. Rugged, against the gradient, it stands. Simply, wholly, if not beautifully.
