Underground

grass

 

Ask the ground how the light feels

when dusk dips down beneath its horizon.

How it feels to soak in the warmth of a melting sun

while blushing against the remnant hours of day.

Ask how it feels to companion such immensity of space, ever turning,

while given the chance to hold in its stillness.

Ask the ground to name its depth.

And interpret its core.

Its answers would mirror that of my own love.

Its answers would be mine.

  1. Love this. I saw you on my blog and realized it has been a bit since I was here. I missed this place!
    Always so much inspiration and heart 🙂
    Love to you –
    Laurie

  2. Thank you for telling me. I think there have been some wordpress problems lately. Hopefully that will get fixed soon. Thank you for continuing to read! 🙂

  3. I enjoyed this one and am touched by the feeling in it. I feel moved to write a response that echoes my own spirit.
    If I get it done let me know how you feel about it. Meanwhile, thank you for a sweet first read of the day.

  4. Thank you, Alex. Please let me know when you write your response. That would be wonderful to read. I always appreciate your stopping by. 🙂

  5. I wish I had your gift with words to express what your (pardon my ignorance, but do I call this a poem?!) thoughts evoke in me. I have no words to share the emotion it stirs in me. I love your comparison of your love with something so endless as the earth. I tried to pick out a phrase I like the best, but I couldn’t ! It’s all so profound.

  6. Thank you, Renae! I get so excited when I see that you’ve stopped by. I have you in mind now when I pick pictures to go along with these posts. Thank you for your kind words. You’re always so supportive. I really appreciate it! 🙂

  7. Devan, I am not receiving your posts. No wonder I was not here. I guess if I don’t receive them again i will have to personally come and check.

    And yes, the answers will be mine too 🙂

  8. Thank you for letting me know. I’ve heard that from some other people as well. I think it might be another wordpress problem. I hope it gets resolved soon. Thank you for personally checking in. I really do appreciate it! 🙂

  9. LOL — I think we’re what they call a mutual admiration society, is it?! I’m always excited to see what you’ve come up with next. How on earth can you write so prolifically and continue to produce new thoughts at such a deep level?!?!
