the itch of the earth

~

 

 

can

you feel it

 

the itch of the earth

stillness through layers

aching for her Creator to come and rake through her sediments with strength

and sift her depths anew

 

can

you feel it

somewhere a stony vein through the center trembles

she felt His breath

an exhale slow with dew and weight

rocks lie in piles, trees drive roots deep

waters seep

all move with her movements in tides

it is not enough

 

listen to her restlessness

ever spinning ever still

 

waiting since–

the entry of white teeth

into the forbidden flesh

of a mysterious fruit,

grown of her virgin soils

 

creatures burrow…

can you feel it?

 

the itch of the earth
