I want to swing from sturdy trees-
To be friends with the birds,
To know all the bees.
I could run away and join the trees.
Be grounded in the Earth-
A strong sense of belief.
Until, I start drifting up past the trees-
Where stars speak words,
Shining in a black sea.
I’m in a world with big purple trees.
An earth near the Big Dipper.
I brought back seeds.
I think I’ll plant a forest of alien trees.
Tall, thick, and mighty strong,
With pretty purple leaves.
