the chrysalis
broken drought
silent rebellion
ghosts of the living
atom to the planet
girl called novella

the tree of life

look up at the tree of life
it has stood for eternity

the tree is our foundation
nature’s cathedral of the night
where the hymns of the people
are sung to soar in holy flight

in the long hours of darkness
asleep in celestial wombs
majestic in crowns of stars
we dream below the ancient moon

climbing these primeval boughs
some of us fall, never awaken
but bound to this arboreal soul
their dreams shall not be forsaken

…a leaf falls from far above
a nova glows within our sight
higher grows the tree of life
from the darkness toward the light
