The Layers of Growing Up

By “Mariofunderburk”

At the dawn of breathing
a shining coin flips the blinking
trees show colored leaves
that the child sees as they flare.

The artist paints a forest
with a thousand crossing paths,
the child twists the angles
as the coin cannot decide.

Levitating in mountain forests,
playing with bamboo dices,
paths build and morph at night
as the child feels with his eyes.

Walking barefoot in the meadows,
a rainbow abacus brushes the pandas,
the child sees with earthy hands
as the wolf walks next to him.
