hungry earth dream

twice this night I knelt in silence,

asking the sleeping earth to show me
a new and benevolent mercy.

a kinder way of living,
a more composed and patient passion.

twice I slipped from the pliant hands of the dream,
the neutral breath of nature leaving me humbled

indifferent yet itinerant spirit
please slow this human life

gently gypsy, wander less
