sipping nectar
its favourite food,
loved also by bees.

leaving the ground

plucking words from the stars

It's five past three.

ivy eating its way up the broken walls,

because I create worlds.

I am the awareness of the trees
because I hear the wind.

Make a din. Make you spin
Pull out my hair. Throw you in the air
