when you are 
oh
    so
        tired

go and lie 
beneath bees and above
the damp dark heartbeat
of summers earth

the grass is 
    tall
    down here

the grass is  s o f t 
and you soften like a flower
in relief

sigh like the breeze
but
oh
    so
        gently 

branches up above
are outstretched arms and smell like 
    summer
    but not too hot

this place is friendly silence
and tired gentle eyes (with lashes that whisper)
and smiles that wrinkle

let me 
    s
        i
            n
                k

into the
earth
and cease
to hurt

be one with the breeze
you are 

oh
    so
        tired

    Very nice - and lying in grass is, as I know you know, extremely fun haha - I loved "the grass is tall down here" - it's so simple but so nice
