Sun Grew as Flower Grew as Me

Sun grew as flower grew as me.

Rays that stretched and reached,

pushed through the wormy earth

to climb on stemmed leg.  We drank falling 

water and embraced warm. Nights,

we faded, rested silently, to be

re-born at dawn. When at last we opened,

our faces turned to one,

flower, me, sun.
