We the Animals (Life’s History)

We are sisters, you and I

oryx trekking across dry desert dunes

searching in earnest for watery salvation.

We are brothers, you and I

wolves racing along the under-story

noses filled with the scent of the hunt.

 We are fathers, you and I

sulfurous stallions, carved from steel

ready to protect our children.

We are mothers, you and I

paradigmed paranthopi, softest touches

love flows from our hearts.

We are lovers, you and I

Eagles pair-bonded in flight

never to be separated.

We are animals, you and I

fractal cousins, leaves on the Tree

sprung up from the earth

in the time before the sea.
