Green Algae

Forgetting that
It was a tree
The green algae
Climbed my feet
And my feet
Wanted to grow into earth
For some roots
And my hands
Growing into stems
With water
The flowers are
But grown in my heart
My breath its fragrance
My smiles its colors
The fruits are the abstractions
And the ideas
To consume
Flowers all around me
Flowers of your sweet company
And the laughter
Like white butterflies
Flying from beneath those red lips
And the pearl teeth
Your talk like a bird’s lament
In early cold dawn
After a long sleep in those nests
The roots and the stems
Fruits and flowers
So we are in this beauty
Of surrounding
In swinging motions
In the breeze
That connects us together
Butterflies and birds
Laughers and songs
