Nourishment


by Charlotte Hamrick


Texture, air, light -
a hundred stalks unfurlng,
colors rise rough with gold,

mythic tones from the deep black
alluvial soil of gum and cypress,
of pine and pinoak, the

heartbeat of a primal
nature opens up, confused 
and wild, starving in it's earnestness,

murmuring intangible prayers blinding 
in their mystery,
Inviting a hand of light and bleached

of color, mornings of blue air, soft as
velvet. The interior world becomes
significant.
