The simplicity of structures



The simplicity of structures
which there needs do serve
comforting rhythms of the
spoken word

The connecting centers of
living things
scatter the seeds from winded seas
nature in their element

To the fields of harvest moons
harnessed to a plowing earth
common as the seedling seeds
shapeless shapes of growing leaves
that satisfies the resting hands

When the day is done
