have you ever noticed
how antiquated plants
become so root bound
and prove to be difficult
to remove from the ground

their roots settle so closely
and they wish not to be
set free unto liberty

releasing them from this tightly matted state
would enable other root systems to congregate

but alas they never
and ultimately
the roots
will of each other
My sister who is an avid gardener, has had trouble getting her root bound plants out of their pots.
