disentangling moments

it took several hours this morning
to carefully
disentangle all roots

it was sometimes a bit messy
sometimes a bit worrisome

there was always a concern about damaging
perhaps wounding
and damaging life
not yet visible

it is always good to expose
the roots of a previous season

checking for disease
open wounds
stunted growth
dead areas
invasive bugs

I am excited about the potential colors
yet released aromas
increased strength
new soil

new garden mates
enlarged borders
fresh water

abundant life
