Cultivating the Watcher. ~ Anita Brown {Poem}

Dreams. Stars.

Once upon a time, I misidentified and

sowed into an entity
of another name
maybe we’ll call her the migrant stranger
the “dreamer”

the one
who labels
and partitions
she toils
in dusty clay
a sluggish and
sleepy pasture
the tares flourishing
all the while

easily damaged
by a stiff breeze
or errant plow
not known for stability or maturity
the remains imploring to be

till the soil
near the iron ore
chain link!
now there’s a sturdy
from which to hang
your worry
and cowardice

But I live and reap in the field
of both weed and wheat

truth and pestilence

all is coming
without expectation of harvest

Love elephant and want to go steady?
