trembles and bursts
16 April 2010 § 1 Comment
Hello, Earth, it seems that lately
you’ve been a little shaky,
a little quaky, lately–
Are you nervous? itchy? in shock?
Are you tired of being run about upon
(it’s been several millenia)?
Is there something you’ve seen
that is awesome and awful?
The trees have squeezed out new leaves
at the tips of their flower-bedight limbs
and you’ve done your own bursting;
please, though, Earth, know that it hurts us too.
