Chlorophyll

I want to be chlorophyll
In the tree of the world
Not this little hair on a root that I am

You will say “You are not dynamic”
I will say, in low tones  “here take these nutrients to the the leaves on top, up
in the sunlight ”

When you leave I will sit in the darkness
feeling no warmer than 50°F
Dynamic must be closer to 80°
