body/earth 1 - hands

the palm is an orchid
delicate, nourished by thick, resplendent air
a dancer offering careful arcs of growth and grace

the palm is a chrysanthemum
a gardener nourished by contact with dung
radiant, healing with its vibrancy

the palm is sea kelp
a relationship of green ropes
connecting murky depths to water sun

the palm is the center of the earth:
we hold pulsing layers
and magma blood, source of rotating life
in our grip

the palm is a poem
palimpsest of meaningful lines
holding wholeness

  1. I thought I posted this already, but here it is again. This is what the exception prompt, well, prompted... I don't know where these things come from. Rereading it, I think I might want to turn "sea ropes" into "sea roses" and see where that goes... Whatsay?
