soil and soul

Tis poetics night at dVerse and Bjorn offers us this prompt.

Taste the soil or bite the dust, bring me poetry from what you sense in soil.

Be gravedigger or gardener, be soil of your origin and dig it deep.

When you have written your poem, post it to your blog and link it to Mr. Linky below. Please link directly to your poem and not just to your blog, and please also refer back to dVerse.

Then enjoy the poetry of others. Learn and promote what you love by commenting. We are each other’s soil and grow from comments.


this dance of soil with soul

winter and spring may differ

life worms it’s way up

fingers wriggle in the ground

tree roots hold swaying branches
