between us




The seed of life



exists elsewhere?






but where would it be?










In the shelter of a tree. A big barked oak tree. Growing on the moon. A lunar plantation.

Wish into the sky
That we could all see eye to eye
Life could become clear and cloudless, the way unfolds—
Yet our hearts reject:
Nobody wants it. Everybody asks for it.
Even when you die the star aria survives.


The author's comments:
Here on Earth, we can look like stars- vast bundles of bright dots, tightly squeezed together. In this poem, I hope to convey how overwhelming yet meaningless our lives can be.
