Rising out of the Earth by Jo Stewart

I remember rising out of the earth

full of lust and color

playing with the stars

learning apple blossoms

tasting mint, parsley and thyme.


The wind brought rain           

the scent of lilacs traveled

throughout the land

I was carried to the robin’s rest

and heard music from the seas.


We were all newly made then

before the sun gave measure

to every living thing.  We lost ourselves

in rows of corn playing catch me if you can,

unaware, without care, we ate the sun—


With little warning our green world

turned to gold

I threw my arms around the flaming maple

and carved my name.
