Poem-A-Day #152 : Pastoral #1

Poems that use nature as a metaphor are both interesting and incredible obvious. I try to not use nature that way. I try to just let it be.


Pastoral #1 (1/25/03)

My body
Standing in the tall grass
Long blond stalks of hair
Swaying

They brush
I try to stay solid
On the tilting surface
But the earth says no

Motions ankles to give
