Seeing you is seeing a raven snake swimming on a stream, after rain
Most people are scared of it
But I just feel so happy, seeing you frolic in shimmering sunlight
Playing against the flow, splashing
Playing with me when I rode on by
As you swiveled into thorny green abyss
I’m fond of you
We meet again in this form
You a snake
and I, your devoted
When you’re feeling alone and riddled with fear in the dark of the night
And playing catch in an empty living room with a helpless playful dog for the sake of his negligible happiness
I miss the woolly mammoths
They look so majestic in the waning sunlight
How do little mammals survive arctic winters?
I wanna distribute shelters to all of them
Poor shivering babies
They’re all so amazing and it’s wondrous to
Acknowledge that they live and accompany us
In this world; so diverse
From deserts to forests
Where a bullfrog lives
Under a green canopy in paradise
Content with zen eyes
“Why are you a vegetarian?” He asked.
“I don’t like the thought of animals suffering” I responded.
“But animals were created by god to service us” he said softly.
And we ate our meals silently, somewhere in the middle of passive thoughts.
