The Farm RR1

Look at the earth
stacked beneath us. Did you forget
how solidly we are supported, how much sun
and sky, how much rain and rock
and sharp collisions of matter
have shaped this planet so that we, with our farms and wishes,
can perch on fertile ground and send our small roots,
our potatoes and rutabagas,
our marigolds and elms,
our wells and pastures and our yearning for home
deep as history, to water?

Inspired by Neil Young’s painting of the same name. See
