by Nevada Kerr

In a deep telepathic sleep
I feel my way through
Centuries of earth
Through dark soil
And frozen tundra

I spy the rosy blooms of the future
Their carnivorous roots
A strange invasion
Of resilient opportunists
And the farther I go down
The more weightless I become

I hear seeds murmuring
Feel the breath of soft petals
The moist whispers
Of tendril and sprig

It's not long before they change color
And my dream body awakes
That I realize
There's sunlight underground
And a growing orchard above
