Twin oaks within this acorn breathe
inverted, swaying, out of sight.
Aerobic fractals branch and weave,
respiring, soft in ruby light.
Snug against the kernel's back beat,
slower rhythms taste the night.
Cousin of the coral valleys
this ebb and flow defines one life.
Ancient forms, but freshly painted;
the river delta's fanning stripe.
Blue to red the tides flow deeply
source for song and sigh alike.
