From here

We smooth the surface, filling in spaces

holes dug searching for answers,

outwit the worms for they will never feed

on this soul

for ash will blow on the wind and settle

back into part of the whole

as we stand and feel the energy rise

giving guidance and peace to the mind.

We are the dirt where unknown bones are buried

burrow through like the creatures residing

deep in the unknown,

snakes sleep in gaps where light never finds

and we too are connected

in our fears and our movement through

like curving waves undulating parting the grasses

we bask in the sun where we find it,

wondering how we had forgotten to remember

these moments of a solitary silence,

and words will rise like fog

burning off in the morning light

becoming like the dew that lies on mounds

burial grounds for yesterday,

damp and a ready feast

for the birds that sink their faces below earth

searching for sustenance,

moving to where it is that perhaps they hear

come here to this place below the towering tree

and find the gifts given,

crawling insects and worms to fuel

for another day of life.

Monday meandering thoughts on dirt (don’t ask me why, it just kept surfacing like a small hill) and life. Peace and blessings and a happy day to one and all โค

  2. Dirt and dust create a nice way of thinking about life. Even if verses from the Bible don’t resonate, counting the grains of dirt lead to thoughts in the vastness of life…

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone write about dirt quite like this. That’s some reflection, Kim.

  4. It’s good to explore the ‘dirt’ … these words really spoke to me:
    ‘and words will rise like fog
    burning off in the morning light
    becoming like the dew that lies on mounds
    burial grounds for yesterday,’ …. have a great week ๐Ÿ™‚
