FOUNDATIONAL PRACTICE (a prayer) – Hour Twenty-One (2021)



earthen and so often overlooked

not a thought past our doormat 

unless we’re calling for a broom


Dirt! Ground! Soil! Clod! Sod! Turf! Loam!

never held us on a pedestal with You looking up

but You / supporting us wordless / demanding so little


Mother Gaia of the mountains, forests, plains and gardens

may we never grow weary in wonder of your raw abundance

remembering the root of our meal / where-so-ever be our table
