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. My favorite lines,
    “We grow in common ground.
    Share the dirt.”
    This says so much with few words.
    Thank you for the spirit of unity.

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. Oh! What you can do with lens! It makes love through the viewer and your prose seduces thoughts that resonate!

    So nice. 🙂


  5. You have crafted something so moving with so few words! Envious of your efficiency, it’s beautiful.
