in the cherry orchard

in the cherry orchard

where I breathe in blooms

and lay among the roots

who grow from memories

the blossoms sunbathe

above as I make shapes

out of the sky with my hands

  1. Yes! This is the stuff I love to see! Lovely poetry you have there. Is there a reason you used the term “who” to refer to roots, instead of the standard “which” or “that”?

    • Thank you! Paul was playing guitar the other night, and this poem came out real quick! I used “who” because the roots seemed more like people who were hanging out there with the speaker. Plus, it is a softer sounding word than “which” or “that.” Do you think I should change it?
