The Rich Earth


The rich Earth

Dark black and brown

Sifts through fingers

The substance of possibility

Precious and receiving

The sun is jealous

The sky envious

And the moon covets

They bluster brightly

And immature

But the rich Earth

Dark black and brown

Lays patient

Never denying

Judging nothing

Not even the heavens

In the midst

Of their childish rage

I’m a California native and live in the mountains with my fiancé and two cats. I’ve also been known to engage in art and music; two of my other endeavors, but my foundation is language, written, read, spoken or sung. If I ever had a tombstone, which I won’t, maybe it could simply say…” Wordsmith.”
