the earth in therapy
unknown

a tremulous stretch rumbles from deep within,
 1
while yawning her magnetosphere
 2
in ripples of plasma-coloured delight...
 3
 
 
she shudders with a
 4
feeling for change, something old with new:
 5
 
 
               - human -
 6
 
 
we're often memento mori,
 7
 
 
myopic about
 8
the
 9
end of our story,
 10
our last gasp
 11
of surrendering,
 12
diving
 13
infinitely
 14
in,
 15
an unending
 16
bending turning
 17
 
 
into a whirl'd without end.
 18
 
 
yet, we see
 19
the tree,
 20
gnarled and
 21
askew, reaching
 22
with its bony-finger
 23
to a cloudy-whirl,
 24
white on blue, all the
 25
while curling-roots
 26
around stones
 27
of earth, made of mud
 28
and stars, come of
 29
sipping nameless
 30
elements of course ...
 31
yes, it lurches
 32
in the wind, whimpering for the climb,
 33
making leaf-song,
 34
from Sun drenched dirt,
 35
the blood of longing
 36
serpents-up its trunk,
 37
from deeper
 38
turnings
 39
where
 40
roots have
 41
 
 
sunk
 42
