Magic acorn

as we both know there is no magic
but yes, there is imagination
and under the hat
this red oak acorn could easily be a heart –

to make it sprout just leave it on the ground
and watch it‘s aortas pierce the soil
reach for the sun and spawn
another million acorn sons

this red oak acorn could also be an eye
that saw the ages running by
and hid them neatly inside the shell
to weave a story of it‘s kind

and now it‘s looking at the girl
with all that time it took to find
the only palm that grasps the story
the only brain that knows the spell
