The Land


It’s time for Friday Flash 55 again.  Can’t believe the week has flown by so quickly.  Be sure to visit G-Man and all the other micro-fiction pieces.

soil conservation
common sense
to protect commodities
a capital plan
for greater yield

that’s a good thing
to save the soil
yet to this one
the land is dead
an object to possess

to me the land lives
a patient lover waiting
for a gentle caress
to coax a blissful sigh
as her colors climax

  1. Of course Teresa, you live off the land. And in turn it returns it’s love for YOU!
    And your great mind always praises it’s Glory. You are such a Gem!
    Loved your colorful 55
    Thanks for playing, thanks for your support, and have a Kick Ass Week End

  2. There actually used to be something called the Soil Conservation District. My Dad used to work there. But like so many good programs at the local level, this one too has been watered down and defunded. I like your poem for the soil, the gentle caress of conservation.
