to poet the word


to stay clear the shrub,

to risk not the fire,

to hold fast the salt-plain,

to pray out the flood.

 

to hew down the hillside,

to un-see the vision,

to forego the silence,

to un-hear the word.

 

to hunker the moment,

to profit the tyrant,

to loyal a dynast,

to return the dream.

 

to lower from round-top,

to tree by the water,

to root deep in giving,

to drink in the world.

______

 

Jeremiah 17:5-8

 

for one doubting the use of shrubs, shade,
and things growing green.
