There are yellow flowers in my yard
They’re the caterpillars’ stars – best they’ll know
I can guarantee a Chinese man has flowers in his own garden and they’re yellow

I can’t see them but I am sure they’re there
I wonder if he thinks thoughts like this
We’re not so different
The DNA we share is the flowers’ scent and the bees will find us

What’s that? You still think the world is flat?
I’m sorry to inform you that it’s not subjective
How come? I don’t think that you are dumb
But obviously you need some perspective

We’ve been searching though we have barely seen
But a fraction of a fraction
There’s so much distance, light years in between
My back yard and the Chinese garden

We’re the molecule drifting in a pool
If our will has fuel, it could be so cool

There are minerals in shooting stars
Though they come here from afar, we know them
As we travel through galactic seas,
Finding cosmic flower seeds, we grow them

It’s probable civilization exists
And even might be watching
If they’re indifferent and fixated
We’re in for a rude awakening

In the lion’s eye, there’s a zebra stripe
One prays while it hides, one preys on the night
