Amazonia

Fires pierce through

the lungs

of our Earth

gasping for air

yet

politics

further

strangle it.

Message

We are
living
temples
divinity
within reach

Joy

A cup of coffee

from a white

porcelain mug

bitter blended

2 teaspoons of sugar

with a splash of milk

gently awakening

the senses

Hoping the day

is as good as

the first sip

Releasing

You are not

your thoughts

Breathe

release

Clear

the static

with love.

Coração

I love you

like

the amount of grains

in the sand

like

the amount of times

the waves

crash ashore

like

the oxygen

that trees produce

because my heart

feels so happy

when I’m

with

you.

Practicality

Do not

Water

barren lands

for bonds

that will dissolve

like sand.

Companion

My feline friend

says I love you

either with

a meow

a kiss

wanting a boop

grooming me too

walking together

like sidekicks

or gets into a

perfect purring position

on my chest

drifting off

to peaceful rest.
