I Am

I am green, the color of the
grass, a stallion leader of
the horses,
banana, the ripe
she of the sun, Marcus Garvey
man of peace, snow,
the whiteness of an angel's wing,
spring flower, bloom within,
I am an airplane that
soars across the sky
I am a ship that
flows across the sea
I am a parrot that speaks
my own words
I am the cotton that heals
your wounds.
