My Friends

Picture: Love Is In The Trees by Cedar Lee

*

My friends are in love,

With each other

And everything all around.

*

They tickle the sky

And drink from the ground.

Their blood is fresh

And moves up and down.

Behind thick skins

And slippery winds,

Bones grow dry

As time passes by.

*

In the middle of a grove,

I’ve found true love,

As unconditional

As the sun.

In the middle of a grove,

I’ve found tree-love,

So the birds

Sing as one.
