Above sprouts green lawns,
beneath lies decaying bones,
births, buries life zones.

Cities rise and fall
Earth remains spinning through all
the lives led and lost.

To be continued tomorrow…

  1. My thanks to you and to Melissa. How much have we buried beneath earth? And how many things have grown atop? It goes on. And it’s authentic and affirming to remind us poetically of all this.

    1. I’m sorry, Melinda(!). I’ve read so much of your writing. I really should know better. Admittedly, I’ve been preoccupied of late, more than usual. And, Rosema, I seem to making mistakes at your blog. I apologize.

      Still like your collaboration. Earthly wise.

      1. Woah! That would be really, really awesome. Like, REALLY. (Though I don’t know how to do a proper collab) 😀 😀 😀

        And, I remember I still owe you a sequel. I already have it in my drafts after soooo many years (an exaggeration). Haha. Will be posting it this weekend. 😉
