the grassland

grassland personifiedit moves
waves
seduces the dry earth
caresses dirt breasts that heave
sigh
and roll into the sky

red diesel scar
cuts
drains her of gathered tears
from the harsh winter

another winter
she survived
waiting for the spring
waiting to be remembered
waiting for her potential.

we are her dust

and God breathed
