Some seek holiness, some seek salvation,
The question and answer wait in divine dirt magic of creation,
I’m from the city,
What I know of agriculture, I know vicariously,
I know that plants sustain me,
Yet my attempts to grow them have gone mostly unsuccessfully,
The ground was not quite right, inhabitable clay,
When I restored the soil, the bunnies ate what grew all day.
Behold, She is a Priestess of dirt,
Her alchemy has nourished many in our shared world,
In the winter she dreams,
Of seeds sprouting into any number of things,
I have studied her thaumaturgy,
Waking, making, reality of envirotheopraxic dreams.
