Earthworm Dream

by Larry Chamberlin   Jan 5, 2021


Soft here,
tastes of
ooze
rotting
tender
shoots
buried
too deep
to live.

Hard!
Recoil,
turn,
hard here,
so bad,
turn again;
where is
the soft?
It is all
too hard!

Awaken,
ahh,
it is soft

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks, Michael, cool prompt

    I agree, the format is very worm like. Nice job!

    To be an earthworm! Simple, serene perhaps, seeking that soft, moist soil. The format was perfect for this poem, too. Great job with the prompt!
