“Haiku Series Part 1:Earth”By:Daphne Knox McClain


Red clay beneath feet

White, soft sand between my toes

Life returns to earth.


Rolling hills slope down.

Thunder crumbles the loose dirt-

Ground is not the end.


Bugs crawl upon it.

Snails roll around upside down.

Stars dancing on soil.


Ant hills-burrows-sprouts

The signs of life now present.

Beautiful axis.


Rotational spin

A part of the galaxy

Ashes to ashes.
