New Beginnings

This is where we come to mulch down
when life is at pits end
we lay our heads to the earth
wilting, dehydrated, spent
and nestle in for the long haul

We are a community of has-beens
once thriving members of nature
but we have flowered too long
partied through every moon phase
and every sunrise and sunset

Now we lay ourselves to the soil
once more seeking to live
and time will give us that
we will nurture each baby step
the growth of new life

Come, we will give you spades
of earth nutrients, tend your young
all we ask for is rain and sun
a fork to till us into the soil
and we shall reward your ten-fold.
