Grassroots effort

Welcome Tyler to the FFT World Poetry party! He is a constant inspiration. I wrote this after reading part of his poem.
Sing to me
in the spiraling
breeze
of the four
winds,
carrying the dust
of us all.
I hope your words take wing today, my magical friends.

The ancient eavesdropper

Speak
to me
in the
cool tongue
of a clear
mountain
stream.

Absorbing
the morning sun
through every pore —
a solar flare of
daffodils dances
in an open field.

Inch by inch
worms measure
the earth’s waist.

Deep in thought
uprooting memories
& transplanting poetrees.

Poultry DJs
mixing up the dirt
chicken scratch.

Green straws
syphoning
the morning dew —
photosynthetic
pipettes plumbing
the soils’ depths —
grassroots effort.

Down on all fours
in a field of clover
luck is beneath me.

Clothing mountains
in motley garments —
wildflower fashion
statement.

Nested
in the grass —
upturned
canary-colored
petals —
begging
like newborn
beaks
for sunlight.
