Trees

I heard a story of the trees on this island

Hiding in plain sight

Centuries ago

When one tree knew its friend is dying

It fused itself to the other

Sharing the same earth, wind and water

They grew together

Twins fused in time

Wrapped around the same dirt

Breathing the same air

Living a single life fused

Siamese twins

Sans the two minds

Wish we all lived like that

Under our single sky

No me and you

No us and them

People living together

A single all consuming organism

One Earth for all of us

All oceans under our embrace

The winds our messenger

Each soul saving another in need

For no reason at all

Love Letter to the Wind

Wind by Floria

You touch my face

Graze my lips

Like a kiss of slight grace

You brush past this rusted skin

Born out of turbulence

You die easy

You’re never an assurance

And like a thought, you are fleeting

I hid from you

On cold winter nights

Hoping for a warm hue

You headed home, your soul contrite

And now at the profuse

Rise of my sun’s painful prowess

You remain elusive

To my mind’s duress

I miss that vague whiff

That breath that snakes up

The dried up leaf

With a fresh leash of life

I miss your kisses

Your fingers through my hair

Those angry hisses

In the inside of my ears

I promise to welcome you

Even in deathly cold, I’ll breathe you in

Like an ex lover’s perfume

I’ll keep you safe inside closed eyelids…
