Humankind, like trees,
though going different ways,
bonded by the ground.

Dreamy; perfection,
represents folkish lifestyle—
dollish, delusion.

Pops up all around,
as teen’s pimples; sans the mess,

Unabashedly
governments stand; so can you—
hold your ground with pride.

Reflection of the afternoon sun

So bright it’s blurry,
all life is dazed and confused—
in spring comes summer.
