#054: Stories as secrets of survival

When we’ve had our fill of chlorophyll

Getting ready for those purple days

We’ve earnt our ancestral anthocyanins

Time to pass on our earthly essays


Of how we tried?

We tried to try?

Oh, what a life!

Oh, how we tried!


When their elders transferred, they lived on in the trunk of the tree

So their deep-rooted wisdom greeted the collective on the daily

Tales not simply tales but secrets of survival branded on bark

What letters will we leave so our buds aren’t abandoned in the dark?
