Purple Clematis

   hammered gold
and royal purple

decorate a galery
      in my dreams


i cannot claim
      to own either

my tastes are simpler

growing flowers
   in the backyard

finding decent food
   and not taking
what isn't mine

are important to me


i remember swimming
   in a tropical ocean

watching bright fish
      watching us

aliens in their domain
   we must breathe air


our limitations 
      become obvious
