Grass Tether

by Ashley Beeby about a month ago in surreal poetry

A poem of personal direction.

If only the grass would grow and

Bind my feet to the ground,

Tie me to the soil and let me

Root my soul into the earth

So that I have a tether to secure me

Against the winds that sway me from my


In the clouds where my heart

Searches for the roads towards my goals.

But, if it were to break,

The wings I'd grown to battle the winds

That resist and threaten my direction

Would fail to find the roots again.

- A.B.
