Starfish

Starfish we were, and golden eyed

Strings of memory, before ever we cried

Starfish we were, two snakes entwined

Coded language, divinity enshrined.

 

Starfish we were, Five pointed stars

from the heart of the apple, Venus and Mars

starfish we were, all connected together

fractals reduced to the vein of a feather

 

starfish we were, from our toes to our hands

our DNA helix in the quartz of the sands

from mountain to sea-bed and up to the stars

the heart of our matter, of how we’ve come far

 

starfish we were, there’s no going back

what we desire, is not what we lack

starfish we were and golden eyed

coded language, divinity enshrined
