Message from Writer

"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself." -Thoreau

The Floor Has Eyes & The Land Does Not Sleep

October 8, 2020

FREE WRITING

The floor has eyes
and the land does not sleep
The trees say their goodbyes
as the wildflowers weep

The fires are not hungry
and the thunder bellows
but the land is growing empty
the rain kisses the spirits shadows

Waves lash out against the cliffs
slowly they wear down and away
we lash out with our pounding fists
and the thicket suddenly can no longer stay

The wind lifts the resting leaves
in a flurry, they all go
as the tree looms and grieves,
if she will get to grow leaves again she does not know

The land is awake
The land is alive
Alone she doesn’t know how much more she can take
before she will be left to break

The floor has eyes
and the land does not sleep
She fights for our lives
She says it's time we wake up from our sleep….
I was trying to write a sort of "witch spell" for a story haha, and it developed into this instead. So, I suppose I will keep it as is.
