Close your eyes and tell me… / Natalie A. Chao
Close your eyes and tell me…
What do the woods smell like?
You know how sometimes
when you fall on the grass,
and then you get a grass stain —
it sort of smells like that
What does it sound like?
Like birds are chirping,
they are talking to each other saying
What does it feel like?
Sometimes it feels like a sting
you can touch a thorn
but sometimes it feels soft like a leaf…
there is a plant that when you touch it
and then opens up
we have one on gram’s path.
