POETRY

Roots and Seeds

I see miracles in front
falling onto retina like seeds
and flowers sturdy as trees shoot up
your colours blossom out of my eyes
growing recreation/return pollination
your image assembles
in the void between us
reaching past the black rings and
firm roots steady you

 firm roots steady you
reaching past the black rings and
in the void between us
your image assembles
return pollination/growing recreation
your colours blossom out of my eyes
and flowers sturdy as trees shoot up
falling onto retina like seeds
I see miracles in front
