The Ground

This post is part of the “Blogging from A-Z April Challenge”! The “G” themed inspiration for today is “ground.” Enjoy!

The Ground:

In this world of persistent gravity
You tell me you are not falling in love
But floating in it
That your heart beats so fast and strong
It suspends you like the wings of a hummingbird

Still, I cannot imagine your immunity to
The rush of the rain to the ground
The pull that tears the avalanche down the mountain
The shrugging swallow that awaits men who jump
From bridges

With our frail mortality
Our crippled humanity
Amidst the weight of our flaws
We cling together as we fall

And I cannot believe that the love we create
Is loftier than the poor, beaten ground
To which
All

Things

Tumble.

(Coming up tomorrow on The A-Z Challenge: ‘H’ is for “Hipster”)
