Still working on this one, but it originated from thoughts that came about whilst tending to the veggie patch over the summer..
Sole-deep footprints where
the soul reaps from the
impressions the body makes
-grounded, not bound but wrapped
in earthy warm embrace-
the sun-baked soil raises you
and takes you back to you;
an intimate conversation with the world,
a gentle exchange,
not prising but patiently unfurling you
-blooming you without stigma or style:
you look out to look in.
