Chlorophyll is a term used for several closely related green pigments
found in cyanobacteria and the chloroplasts of algae and plants.
Long walks under autumnal trees
juice bars, movie dates
and a feeling You regenerate Me,
The smell of My molecular attraction
to nature, sky,
transforms My beating heart
and You make My blood flow and float
I’ve placed cuttings
in milk vases,
water vessels for life.
Thank you for producing My oxygen
I remain in Your airy wake
You stabilize Me
and waste My oxygen
I settle into our seasons together
wearing Your ring on My finger
all that clings to You
gives Me what I need
in a binding love note
Author’s Note: All of the leaves and flowers in these visual art images were taken over a long period of time in a world filled with relationships and Chlorophyll by the author, whom also changed over time.
