Green Man
By Reza Rites

It was one of those days
Where fingertips
Tripped on cloth
Knuckles declared war on knots
And fears mingled
With doubts
During simple
Daily exercises

Still
Locs ended up wrapped Tightly
And right
Beseeching life to reflect
The twists and folds
And the fruit trees
And flowers
After thunderstorms
Green with delight
And promise

It was one of those days
Where fingertips
Tripped on cloth
Knuckles declared war on knots
And fears mingled
With doubts
During simple
Daily exercises

Time for the
Rain
