born from flowers

could it be that we
were born from flowers
initially at least

back then when
storms were earthly showers
for roots and leaves

a drop into a puddle
into streams and lakes
a flower bending down to have a taste
the first lips, the first tongue
the first sip, the first face

then wanting more
the first arms
to bathe the first cheeks
the first breath
the first trembling of knees...

could it be that we
uncurled our leaves
initially at least
that we smiled from
the center of our petals
that we got our wings
by drinking from the sea
