Plant Envy (In E-Flat Minor) - Poem by Hugh Cobb

Light filters through trees
a mist of illumination
snatches of green burst
out of greyed shadow
struck by a droplet of photons:


Light dances revealing form:
shape of a tendril;
young leaf's heart;
budding on end of
a grafted branch...

Gazing at a miracle,
I remain
enraptured of chlorophyll
and sunlight,
jealously desiring
an epiphany of photosynthesis.
