Plant

close up photo of four identical and symmetrical cherry tomatoes on the vine

Quartering herself,
mother creates symmetry—
tomatoes in vines.

Embrace

photo of a tree's branches as seen from below, with the sun streaming through the leaves

Arms sprawling outwards,
embrace the warmth of the sun
as ancient trees do.

Union

Birds of a feather,
bound as one, by flesh and blood—
seeds of flower crops.

Invisible

Insect and human,
along busy city streets,
walking unnoticed.

Facades

Sunflower bud’s life—
a multi-layered affair;
everyone wears masks.
