This is dead earth.

Hard

over-ploughed

over worked.

Like you or me maybe?

Not enough rest

or good food

No time without being disturbed or asked to work and work and work some more.

Like you or me

maybe?

Then dusted with white powder

to try and encourage energy

Like you or me

maybe?

 

 

Imagine how it could be if

we could rest,

eat well,

work less.

Maybe then we would need lessĀ of whatever our white powders are;

sugar,

salt,

Botox,

cocaine.

 

Then maybe we could let the earth rest

as we slow,

need less,

drive less,

eat less,

smile more,

laugh more,

grow more,

craft more,

connect our hands to rich, loamy fertile soil.

and find health.
