Let me tell you about someone I saw today
Walking through the sea of green in which she stood
Unsure about who she was, I searched for a clue, a fruit perhaps

And then I found it, I found everything.
She was not the most magnificent of trees but she had this sturdiness, like she had been standing there for a while


Her hair was a flash of colour, it was algae green with a spray of yellow and patches of brown
A gentle breeze in subtle chaos danced through her leaves and they sang
A sweet seducing melody as old as time
It lured me to her bosom.
They sang about the birds they've seen
About the rains that fell like crystals from the skies


Her waist heavily beaded, with brown beads of snow
Rich like the ever flowing rivers of the Sahara
From the corners of my eyes, I caught her staring at me
With eyes that shone like a thousand fireflies

She stared at me like she knew me, like she loved me
A love greater than love
I knew I had seen her before for she made me feel whole
I knew I had loved her once for I felt that familiar song well up in the womb of my soul
I knew I was once her fruit
I know i am her fruit
