Second Sunday of Advent: Plants

IMG_6441It is night
The oak trees are dreaming

In their deep night dream-sleep they mumble

They mumble a windsong of fireflies
They mumble a dreamsong of fireflies

They mumble a windsong of moonfire
They mumble a dreamsong of starfire

The leaves dream: dark dreamsthick dreams
The trunks dream: light dreamsfluttering dreams
The limbs dream: deep dreamstangled dreams
The roots dream: sky dreamssun dreams

It is night
The oak trees are dreaming
