Your Earth

Today I am using my blog to out a friend. You see she's a wonderful poet and artist, but like I once was, she's in the "closet" with her writing. Oh, she's had a few things published here and there, but that's her secret. She never lets anyone know...

So here is a Poem by my good-as-gold friend, who reads and edits for me all the time....


Your Earth

I want to explore your Earth,

tunnel you like a mole,

overturn your rocks

and watch your insects scamper,

submarine my hands in your muddy sea,

get you under my fingernails,

in my kneecap creases,

around my taproots.

I want to taste you in the rings

of ruby beets,

smell your raw stew

brewing in skywater,

feel your grit in my grassy eyes

washing you out.

I want to weed you,

dig you,

tuck you in,

blanket you in moonshine,

be your evergreen,

your grandiflora bouquet.
