Love and Algae

4 19Under the Flower Tree web

 O Little Thinker Girl, hanging out there,
I care not if you have old clothes or un-abundant hair
For it is not mere beauty that me ensnares.
 
 No, I hide quiet under the boughs, for now from you apart,
Waiting for the algae of our love to grow again between our hearts
Just as it did a just few weeks ago at the very start.
 
P.S.
If you please, a little extra sludge at your feet
Would also be really neat.
The fact that it's gluten-free makes it a real treat.
