earth note 108

last planting
before an indecisive winter

a couple of young alberta spruce
small spiral dense green needles
having wandered home
to a wet ground sanctuary
& mission
to hold
a slipping hillside
tho the paranoid rail
all is futile
we’re lost
‘cept for the waiting

i refuse to accept this

My mind screams paranoia
but I still plan for the future
as though I have hope..
