a poem? a dream? / Alice Shinkos

i dreamt about a lily last night

i wondered if the lily was me

i could see the roots and lovely parallel leaves and flower buds and flowers

the plant’s roots were suddenly immersed in water

and it grew and expanded and became full and vibrant and alive

so happy in its element

so healthy to be nourished

by the life-giving water
