the good we are

each day
the earth tries
to pull us down
to hug us forever
to herself

each day
we arise
like flowers––

to light the heart––
& add our sweetness
to the taste of honey

we are children
made of kindness &
to make eyes

we want to flood
the sky
with laughter

at dawn
we sing to the sun––
at twilight
to the stars

& the wisest
among us
cuddle together
through the dark
