Incantation

Leaves in summer, full of passion, always flirt

Roots in winter, compassionate, hold the dirt

  1. I agree with the different meanings of the two words however, don’t you think ‘dirt’ lends a lovely poetic effect here? Moreover the earth is unfortunately regarded as ‘dirty’ merely because we self-proclaimed superior beings stand, as if looking down at it. So the soil, to some extent, would be dirt(y). Just my thoughts here… 🙂

  2. It is amazing how much can be said in so few words, buried (pun intended) in endless layers beneath a few letters. I love this for that reason (and I am biased toward nature). I feel for the roots, who themselves feel, underground out of sight, in a dark, cold world and season, holding the dirt needed for those leaves to show off, feeling the weight, carrying the burden so selflessly.

  3. I also love and am grateful for how you inspire me, artist to artist. I see so much in simple nature/photos, too. It rejuvenates me that a few nature outings can stock me full of poetic insights and wisdom.
