spilling mother’s milk
Nature’s bounty feeds her child -
river’s youth fades fast

On Solid Ground - El

My feet are on solid ground,
for to the earth I am bound.
Though I hear river flowing
and see the full moon glowing -
a pie in star-studded sky -
I do not dream I may fly.
My feet are on solid ground.
