Rooted and Grounded

Smith

PC: Michael Raymond Smith

by ric hudgens

Humans pretend to live
suspended in air
feet never needing
a place to land.

Rilke wrote
gravity is grace
so we should surrender
trust our heaviness
fall to a depth
where life becomes possible
again.

Revitalize our super powers:
Touching
Tasting
Seeing
Smelling
Listening

What we once feared evil
is goodness
divinity in dirt
rock of ages cleft for me.

Rooted

Grounded

Saved.
