The Cherry Stone: A Dream

Originally posted on charles1958:


We ate the cherry

half and half, lips meeting.

and then the stone,

hopped and skipped away,

and we laughed

as it scurried,

looking for soil

in this concrete jungle.

It stopped:

Hand in hand

we stared,

as it began to grow

and the ground began

to buckle under the green,

and begin to lift

us up too,

and soon we were

bracing and cuddling

against the wind,

which drove the tree ever onward:

Upward, and the earth grew small,

with the strange unity we felt,

as there were no nations                                           ,Earth from Outer Space

no hardships,

no wars;

up here there was us,

and our cherry stone tree.
