nothing to be planted here

woods quiet
ground groaning
hard, cold
beneath my feet

echoing the heavy burden
I’ve become

trees bent
wind wrestling
can’t hold much
like words or seeds

nothing but outlines remain

lips move
hands pressing
taken, blessed
disappearing need

carrying the illusion of time
we come
