A matter of perspective.

Gnarled roots are my sinew.
Mountain ridges are my spine.
Buried channels full of wet darkness
are arteries feeding tissues of sod.
The grass is my skin, the forest--
my crowning glory.
I lie beneath the loving sky;
a teasing companion.
The wind is her breath,
The stars and sun and moon
are her charms.
our children, the clouds
are creatures of fancy;
dark and fair--churning with electric dreams.


I could be at peace--except for the gouging parasite
that is man.  His unnatural order, his puny dirty cities
make me itch.

WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL INDEED!

Enjoyed the imagery here -- sort of a surreal druid-type write.

Man has been itching since we left the Garden, where all things were made perfect by God's hand until until temptation left us all wanting and scrathing our heads wondering why! Great poem Lee!
