73 Animalists between the Concrete

UNSEEN CREATURES

with undertaker features

which wriggle and burrow

with their tubes of elastic to mash

and melt oldest plant plastic soft

workings with hard machination

waste and dead bodies

they eat the most squalid

~

Blind thieves whose underground struggle earns title

Kings of the Soil  will squirm their best for the Earth

and grandest crowns of emerald beauty whose glisten

is nothing without the giant Unseen

~

Forms of the lowly, the lonely, the slimiest

these creatures from darkness

disappear

from the

Light

the most

indisputable

unimaginable

Eaters of Germs

Those creeping and crawling

but constant hardworking

the humble

in service

A Spring pink flower, once a pink seed and friends with a pink earthworm,  watches the ground to see its old friends at work.

Today, a view of The Earthworm’s Holiday Home, and a shot underneath of  good soil in the making. One worm was too private for the lens.

A FRESH UNDRESS AMONGST THE SUCCULENTS

and sculptured sandtrail tells the story

where a Saharan beauty once slithered soft

with silent speed as a shark

in constant rhythm

and fixed focus poised for unpredictability

moving in increasing surface speed

towards the unsuspecting

scaled to strike in any place

at any time

in burning heat

before a sandstorm after

This post has taken inspiration by the WordPress Poetry 201 course.

 Day 4

Today’s challenge is to include:

 Animal = the theme

Enjambment = the use of the end of one line becoming the start of the next

and creating flow and also new interpretations

Concrete = picture making with words

  1. Reblogged this on Blisters, Bunions and Blarney and commented:
    Ode to an earthworm
    As it is my intention, when I’ve finished the permaculture principles series, to ‘talk dirty’ and focus attention on the international year of soils. The earthworm being important to soil building, I’ve included La Floralie’s concrete poem about the humble earthworm here.

    1. Hi Safar Thank you so very much for your positive response and reblogging my poem, that is a real honour. I did infact reply back a few days ago, but not sure that it went through, so if you get this in effect twice, sorry about that bit, but hope your permaculture class get something from it. Your site is great by the way!
