"the earth remembered me": day #16

 "I thought the earth remembered me,
she took me back so tenderly,
arranging her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds..." -Mary Oliver
It's been such a long time since I walked deep into a patch of forest, leaned up against a tree and smelt the earth. At seems that way.  Lately...I have been feeling all kinds of blue...all sorts of mixed up emotions that I have to untangle. There's so much I want to express, so much I need to lay down...but words fail me right now. It's enough, then...that "the earth remembered me"...

It's enough that I can feel the sun against my skin...bare feet on the grass. For's enough.
