Take a peek…

Standard

To pluck a single strand, a smooth blade of grass
Cool to the touch, feather light
Consuming perfectness of the Artwork, feeling it seep in while braiding the stem through each finger
The force of pressure, squeezing the drink from one of nature’s mysteries, the nectar of life
Learning to make a plant bleed, humanizing, understanding
Splitting the shaft down the middle
Opening the body up to take a peek inside
Using the sharp edge of a fingernail to conquer and divide
Planting new seeds to grow, to survive.

I am grateful for the opportunity of writing on a lunch break. ❤

  1. I am grateful to take in your photosynthetic and photogenic poem’s warm radiance. We would eat our words and worms dine on these dead scrolls if not for the presence of plants. Hope you had a pleasant lunch 🙂
    Cheers,
    Tyler
