At Grass Roots

Thursday, July 01, 2010

spring green blades
springing up suddenly
through brownish thatch

penetrating life
sharp for cutting
or devouring

next life forms immanent
crawling up from rich, deep
compost-brown levels
of earth biosphere

spot lighted on grass roots
early beginnings barely
hidden or daring
to shoot up into skyward aspirations.
