Exercise in Synthesis

Exercise in Synthesis

Plants open their mouths and gulp light,
allow it to fill their green membranes.
Studies have shown that as they alter
the light, plants experience its taste
as sweet. As they incorporate radiance
into their bodies, yanking at the glow
of fires set in outer space, do plants obtain
any pleasure from their sugared taste buds?

  1. Beautiful. Plants gulping the air is a great intro. I also love the idea of light as "sweet."
