splashing across the greens –
like a white button,
on a finely made fabric.
swaying against the whispering wind,
flushing back fine memories
of a child thrown in the air.
a large moss beyond the soil of Burkinabé,
cluttering a budding seed,
in cosy fingers
made of white hairs and nothingness.
smooth and elegant like a dancer,
taking a gallant ballet
on a given stage of open atmosphere;
