Running Earth

 I am grateful


for the tea cup cradled warm

between my hands,

for my two feet planted


inches deep in Mother Earth.

The spring green curls forth

between my toes.

An insomnolent earthworm

tickles the belly of my soles.


I am grateful

for the ultimate self-fullness

of this time alone;

I am grateful for this practice—

running earth.
