plants

A spring of life drives flowers upward
Each sacred petal blooming energized to the moon
Chemically charged and vegetable driven
Toward the secret sentience of heaven

All abounding plant-flesh of the bush
Each solid stolid woody stem of flora
Enslaved to other life by love
Enriched by mineral power and fusing molecules

Photosynthesizing and effervescing with succulent sailor sap
Fragrancing air with fecund life-force
Tears of dew bless each leaf iridescent
Vegetation erupts in slow motion from earth with pure libidinous passion

Holy subtle quiet movement of expansion
Holy vegetable joy-frenzy of foliage
Holy soaring jarrah trees and microscopic fungus
Holy whole green world in sun’s sensual light
