To Make the World of You and Me
How long does it take
to make the world
of you and me,
the soil of souls,
the promised crop
a sheltered spot beside
Sometimes I do this thing in the evenings... tweet-poeming with friends. @tspoetry usually starts things. Then we begin responding, lifting each other's words and folding them into new poems. Each poem is 140 characters or less.
This particular poem reminded me of a book that Ann Kroeker wrote, called Not So Fast which The Runamuck is currently giving away. (Stop by for a chance to win.)
What I'm saying is... it takes time to make the world of you and me, the soil of souls, the promised crop... But to do that, we need to slow down, behold one another, breathe.
