freestyle sonnet #082: DREAMS OF COMPOUND EXPANSION


Dream situation with expanded compound means 
labyrinth laid out with native white quartz from vein 
running beneath feet; means medicinal herb screens 
hung from more hooks to dry out; means hard-to-explain 

connection to direction without "smart" device 
of electronic nature is strengthened; means paths 
to walk piedmont foothills following imprecise 
yet perfect track of the wild grows; means space for maths 

to be calculated which existed pre-English; 
means palpitations of anxious domesticated 
heart can calm for breath or two, to help extinguish 
fight-or-flight fires "civilized" arson created; 

means taking just care of land just as land takes care 

of you through acts of biospherical welfare. 

(The Bird Tribe - meaning my family - currently got a GoFundMe going to try and purchase the land surrounding our compound, to work into the compound and make a plant sanctuary for my ol' lady's herbal practice, and an extension of my illegitimate arts, and also to keep from being broken into tiny plots of power gridlock. Please visit the page, and drop five on it if you can.)
