NaPoWriMo Day 5: Earth, Dirt, Dust

Fragile beauty from the richness of earth.

Earth, Dirt, Dust

"When does earth
become dirt?"
The thought rinses
through my mind
as I shake
the lettuce dry.

which holds
and nourishes
and gives,
makes its way
into the drainage
of thought.

Kicked into the air
as we fly,
swirling in sorrow,
then settling.


Until its embrace is welcomed once again.

More solemn thoughts settle in, as we ease into Holy Week.
