No. 16

A generation

Imagined, who believe the

Truth of their beauty

 

Because one’s posture

Towards this world is possibly

The best gift of all

 

To say, “This is me,

That is you, and together,

We are beautiful”

 

Tightly holding hands,

Building up, not tearing down

I dream of this day

 

// a response to this

 

No. 15

My hands, in cool dirt

The garden, first provision

Where am I rooted?

 

Calling from the ground

Eden- as it was to be

It’s here, my first home

 

Beauty and full-ness

On display in this garden

Pleasant sights, nourished

 

Until I return

Planting, pruning, and caring

Dirt to dirt, amen?
