The Dreams of the Fruit Fly
a poem inspired by a footnote about dreaming fruitflies mentioned in the book, "The Hidden Life of Trees", by Peter Wohlleben
Feb 7, 2018
How simple and sweet
the dreams of the fruit fly
beguiled awake by
a corpsey blackened banana.
And lured thus
joins its fellows
in a dance of the sugarplum fairies
(rotten banana fairies as it were)
having no itinerary,
no fact checking mission,
just flitting over fertile fruit,
drunk in feast and fragrance,
a merry orbiting
above a trashcan
in a corner of neglect.
Kimmy Sophia Brown has loved humor and music and freedom for as long as she can remember.She is especially passionate about the environment and caring for animals.
