Dear Moss and Lichen,

Growing on that rotten tree

Have you heard of your siblings in the sea?

They cling like you do, but to the ocean floor.

Coral and rock shelves are where they reside,

Wouldn’t you like to go and see?

Imagine how hard you’d both vibe.

They would admire your bright green bristles and lacy tendrils

And you would learn their dance with the daily tide.
