The Trusting Earth

I walk
Barefoot
On the
Soft red
Earth;
The
Trusting
Lusting
Earth.

img_0609_400Like
Some
Native
Tribes
I know:
Tendriled
Roots
Stretching
From the
Soles of
My feet
Deep
Into
The
Bowels
Of
Mother
Earth.

Our
Ancestral
Hearth,
Our
Primal
Birth.

As
The soft
Crackling
Glow of
Embers
Drifts Into
The nighttime
Sky like
Fireflies.

Now
In our
Modern
Days,in
Our modern
Ways;we walk
Amongst steel
Towers that
Penetrate
The clouds
In our loafers
And business
Shoes.

Our roots
Cut from
Under
Our feet.

If only
We could
Remember
The soft
Maternal
Whispers
And walk
Barefoot
On the
Soft red
Earth
Again;
The
Trusting
Lusting
Earth.

Our
World
Would
Be a
Better
Place.

With
The red
Earth
Playing
Between
Our toes.

Like
Some
Native
Tribes
I know.
