point of view of a child

How many days

after a mango ripens

will it fall on the ground?


A child will cup the hands

sweet gravity 

of the fruit falling.


The faintest light at dawn,

faintest light at the end of day

paints the earth and sky

celebrating appearance and departure.


How does a child learn

a mango tree, receiving and giving

 life begins on earth?
