on elements & prosperity

said today to tomorrow: "hi,

we are the same. you have lost

a few leaves but seasons are meant

to change. and there is water

in me, water in you -

three-fourths of your clouds are afraid

to wait for morning.

do not let your spirit

fear the sky.


our trunks make up

for what our roots are lacking.

there is osmosis in our branching veins.


lift your face to the sun:

to be blinded for an instant

is to grow

for an eternity.
