life on the vines

i live life on the vines,
in the stillness of earth tilled in rows.

when it rains, i feel it in my toes
as if they too are rooted
summer sunlight fills my soul
as it plumps the grapes
and in harvest, i taste the sweetness
of another year passing.

    I love this poem, touches the part of me that is rooted in home and garden, with no desire to travel. The poem inspired one of my mosaic pieces.
