November PAD Chapbook ChallengeDay 25
of Earth and PlantYour skin is rough against my touch.
New life will still fight its way through
and offer tender malachite stalks
to lacing whips of raging sky.
New life will elbow its way through:
you raise it well, you turn your back
to lacing lips of raging sky,
drink up the pain. New life is strong.
You raise it well, you stretch your back
towards the sun until it's down.
Drink up the rain - new life is strong.
The water seeps into the air
towards the moon until it's down;
you welcome flames of rising fire,
the water dies into the air -
alive again on waking leaves.
