Earth

Your wheat grew in the ground as did mine.
We have no experience without soil.
Background—our parents and their parents.
Home –ground—our feet on this earth.

Made from ground, sustained by ground,
we are soil. This is the first humility.
If we forget this, we forget that we are human
We are of the land. We are humus.
