Share The Dirt

Once, flowers were placed in gun barrels

As a form of protest.

Today, a garden is needed

To keep the soil of the meadow

Soft enough for all feet to walk upon



We grow in common ground.

Share the dirt.

  1. This is a really beautiful, poignant piece. You say so much with so few words, each lexical choice serving a purpose – I especially liked your use of ‘barefoot’, as it invokes a sense of nature, but also a sense of gentleness/softness/safety as they are able to walk that way without getting hurt or cut. The picture is great too; I love the vibrant colours! 🙂
