I see white birds shine like the light
The music is a song played by the wind.
The powder, the snow shine like little lights, so bright,
Trees tall with their roots in the ocean, a world redefined…
Where it’s one planet but feels like two,
where humans travel on birds.
The sky is the ocean, blue…
and where zebras and horses are all one herd.
Everything at day absorbs light,
but at night…
the tiger’s fur shines like an orange light
while the moon makes the night white.
The grasshoppers are like sparkles in the bush,
and when they fly the green glitters gold…
The chameleons are camouflaged; the perfect ambush,
and where treasures are found in the basket-of-gold.
At night the lantanas are the lanterns,
Where slippers can be found in the orchids,
close to where torch ginger burns.
