dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille: earth

Today’s prompt for the dVerse Poets Quadrille is the word earth.

Tiny shoots in a new garden

Cruel Dance

Your roots, deep veins
in dark earth smell
of heat and safety
Clinging sweet on savory
Luscious minerals necessary for

Life on earth our
feet stabilize during the
eternal push and pull
of gravity’s cruel dance
The earth leaves its
mark upon our soles.

  1. I enjoyed the appeal to the senses, Maria, especially the ‘dark earth smell’ and taste of ‘clinging sweet on savory’ in the first stanza, and then the wonderful twist of movement and the feel of the earth leaving its mark on our feet, rather than us leaving our footprints on the earth.
