Root Dreams — NaPoWriMo day 22 — Earth day!

The richness of spreading
stringy fingers
through star-sparkled soil
is enough for today.

The delicious ache
of reaching down
to bind myself with earth,
all the blanket I need.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow there will be sun;
a long, warm bake beneath
the arms of venerable Tree
shading my space and whispering,

“Stretch far, little sapling,
the days of sun are long,
and you will be thirsty
for water gathered far below,

but come the new season,
there will be butterflies
to settle on new blooms
and carry your dreams to places unknown.”

I planted a tree (okay, a bush) today. How about you? Sweet dreams! ~LD
