Take Care, the Grass

I’ll bend, you know.
Each time you kick
or stomp me underfoot.

Though sustenance
is rare as winter sun,
I’ll thrive, you know

and grow to cover
every corner of the meadow
where you lie.

I’ll rise, you know.
Rise and rise–
I’ll rise.

  2. There is so much to be learned from that field of grass. This piece speaks to me of resilience, strength, determination and stubbornness and I really love how the title could be the close of “Grass’s” letter to those who wish to test its strength or a simple way to say mind the grass. I like, too, that you remind us that the same grass we trod upon will one day cover our resting places (for those who wish to be interred) and that despite our own ends, that grass will continue to thrive. You have great command over the use of figurative language and I love the multiple layers to your work.
