Dreaming of Photosynthesis


Dew drops
Teardrops of nature
Fall from the tip of a slender leaf
Of a weeping willow
Wailing under the cloud cover
Of a tapestry of nimbus
Ominous skies, grating the essence
Of the dainty sun god
As the chlorophyll slumbers
Like a grasshopper in hibernation
Awaiting the call of tomorrow's dawn
For aurora to unravel a new day
A new beginning, the promise of day break
As leafy veneers part with endearing smiles
To gaze, to behold at the glory of Ra
To unite one in spirit
The convergence of long-distance lovers
In the transparency of a celestial love
Holding on their herculean shoulders
The cradle of humanity
For their love emancipates an empowering vitality
For telamons and caryatids
To incarnate to the Valhalla of life
