"COSMIC TREE" City Rock Bluff, Arkansas

I took notice to this tree that stands near the edge of City Rock Bluff while the stars began to come out. Standing there with its branches beneath the cosmos It reminded me of the Yggdrasil tree from Norse Mythology. Similar trees are found throughout cultures in many religions and mythologies. Known as the cosmic tree, world tree, tree of life, and so on. It serves as a connection between three planes (The heavens, the underworld and our terrestrial world). Its branches reaching for and supporting the heavens, while the trunk meets the earth, and roots grip and dig deep in the soil below.
