Poem: Leaven Soil


Ferment your descent 
Leaven the ancient bread
Dawn the veil
Watch as the water flows 
Wait as the forest grows
Arrive like the air blows
Summon your ghosts,
walk toward overgrown paths,
Learn from your past
Fall into the depths of the earth 
Be nourished by the solitude that awaits you
Open your arms like your grandmother 
And you will return to your ultimate truth .
