​If you put a seed
in the ground
dark forces gather
dusky minerals flow
water comes

The deep dark
holds that seed,
feeds it
brings what it needs
to swell a bit
to take those elements
those aspects
of what we call dirt and
convert them into cell
and sprout
reach up
to the light
and then, breaking out
but still holding firm
and rooting deeper
into a firmer
finer relationship
into the dark source
to then stretch
to the light

The front lawn
these trees
the last flowers
of the season
here like clothing
for a deep dark
nourishing earth
