Epiphytes

Climbing skyward, they inch away
The ground below them streaming
With animals and humans
Enough to send them screaming
They don’t want to be smashed
And they don’t want to be eaten

All they want are support and water and sunlight and bees
And peace and quiet
To lounge in the branches with ease
Safe from the dangers below

So for now
They huddle together
Content and growing and free
Up in the trees
