CONCERN FOR A FRIEND NOW FAR A WAY

 

    People of practicality toss shit and rot in a pile

grow tomatoes next spring

mix it all up and let it sit

nature never sleeps

the steady alchemy

Sun     Rain   Air

makes the mix

that feeds the soil

cause everything has a hunger

to live

to continue

in the great breathing mix

You have so enriched my life

I grow like sunflower and cane

Without such nutriment

I may wilt and wither

so warm, soft, and fresh as air

I am

with you

 

a sun so far away
