Grounded

I am dirt I am the thimble full of earth That keeps you tethered to this world Of responsibility Feet lodged in shallow soil But mind, heart in the vapor Of a white haze blowing away To another time Another life You can’t wait to get there You said so yourself How many trips around the sun Did it take For my buds to burst out from beneath Your feet planted squarely on top Of the earth restraining my vines The leafy wisps pushed up on either side In front and in back And still you stepped out Each time Leaving a little more free space, centered To be filled with blossoms
