Giving it up

squares and action
(c) Reena Prasad

It makes me restless: the small pauses in life
A stop at a red light and I slide down through glass
onto the petunia beds
fluid, greedy
not content with relishing them with eyes
needing to feel them
taste me too

So there in the freshly watered soil, I lie
as close as the earth and roots will let me
leaving them no reprieve
but to fill me up with colours and scents
There is a oneness with these fleeting souls
seeing the sky as they see it
wanting to give, give  
and only to give
the essence up to the winds
not in gratitude
but to ensure that I belong here
like the shadows of trees
and the coolness of breeze
and take no more
