Sugar The Stone

Sugar the stone I lie beneath
and wait for weather to come;
then, when rain falls on the rock,
see that the sweet waters run

sure straight down to soak the ground
and seep to my mossy lips
so even held fast in forever
I can taste your kiss.

For Open Link Monday at Real Toads

This has the sad/sweet feel of an old Irish ballad. I love the title; you are so good at coming up with unusual phrasing like that.

WOW! Earth kisses. What we have to look forward to. Do you dream it? Are you speaking for the seeds?

I too think this should be set to music...

I love the way your mind works, MZ. Your poems are always good, but this one is extra special.
I agree with FB and Sioux...it sounds like a song, and maybe it should be one.
