Grass grown tall
Every day, reaching,
Extending tiny petals, like hope.
“Gather Earth’s strength,” grass sings,
“Reach far beyond yourself, your pain.
Emerge from night and all it brings,
Excite yourself with wind and rain.”
No longer dazed, my
Glad fingers skim poetic grass
Reach out to trace
Each flower’s face,
Enthralled with cadence
None can erase.
