Layers of Earth

The last great fountain was a river crossing time
The people kept their own with a bed and a meal
Growing with the garden roots were bones to feed
A daily prayer cast before the mist sprinkled home

Rock carved fossils withstanding aging techniques
Whatever they knew is all we can imagine today
Falling leaves stuck together by the morning dew
Cover shadows left behind by forgetful fire flies

Dear God don’t you remember why we are so bad
We don’t know the inside is real until they bury us
What do you know about me you’re waiting to ask
There is nobody who can lie to you so why bother?

They knew this so their spirit was always ready
The ground they walked on and the air they breathed
Was enough to love as they waited without judgment
Nature was not unkind only a sign of what was to come
