Poetry/Prose

On Blades of Grass

I like it when you speak to me in words I can’t understand

It’s a chance to learn, to bridge a gap

Unless you don’t want me to

In which case it’s time to shift focus

Off the mind and to the heart

Where any matter can be solved

Where the shackles of reason release

To the will of good

There is nothing that your heart would do

To forbid mine’s understanding

And so let us live there just for a moment

We will recognize when we do

And when that moment ends

Just as we see a butterfly land softly

A foot away, on an ardent blade of grass

Reaching toward the sun and fed by it

Graced for that moment

Before survival drives life’s movement

Once again
