The Beautiful Blue Planet

Today a very weird poem that no one will understand not even me the one who wrote it. I wrote these poems and many poems as a young teenager.  I was very weird and there was no one like me.

I, flowing with the waves rolls
I, flying over the blue breeze
I, a tiny crystal of sand
I, one and part of everyone
dancing singing smiling
speaking playing by the sea
heard a lady caterpillar say
feel so beautiful today
put her to safety up on a rusty tree
in the sea sky and sand

I was there on earth and
up in the spiny sun all
dazzling and bright
The bright white light
exploding in a multitude of arms and
a mouth carved out of a rocky shore

I was the very small body
with the too fast thumping heart
and thousands of intricate veins
designing my leafy skin, grass hair
and flowered head
I fell into the liquid mist
expounding upon philosophy
while returning to the womb
rocking in my fetal embryo
seeing the sparkling dazzling
brilliant cord of all humanity
I was whispering for a touch
sobbing over my own red aged hands
let me come back to who i am
I thought as
waves surrounding me with their
dull pounding telling me to go on
and on....

I was pressing my feet to the swirling
pebbled path split in two
breathing the heavy fog
of sand, feathers and salty fumes
I was running down a green green hill
to a brown brown cottage watching
my body drift about aimlessly
on errands of its own knowing......

I saw
Four I's painted in Picasso's pastels
with two snaky arms pushing
all the I's together

which one am i? I thought and through the night
when, with the rain drops, I knew I
was here ........I was here
on earth
the beautiful blue planet
