Connecting the experiences of macroflora and fauna
but also, you say
"Dance for me,
Sway for me,
Bend for me,
And break for me."
To part my fingers and coax the rays of the sun
To reveal the spectrum of feelings and colors in you.
To tame you in your chaos;
To dampen the ripples and splashes of you.
When I rise alongside my sisters
When our hair finds its way around you.
Come tiptoe in my submarine forest,
So that I can feel the touch of you.
To your steely weapons of war
When I tighten my clasp on you.
To an insatiable predator’s gnashing teeth
To the unsteady rhythms of you.
When urchins roam my grave,
And this void feels the wrath of you.
By protecting my home,
By restoring balance in the arms of you.
From the turbulence of stormy seas
From the unknown depths of you.
As I grow from this grave,
Fed by the stars, the elements of you.
Be astounded by me..
the magic to disappear and reappear,
the magic of my resilience.
