#Poem Worms

Mud & Worms

I know you have a lot on your mind
and this will be a huge leap of faith
but would you like to come over to the pond
in the woods
and we could coat each other with mud?
The soil around here is clay-rich
and with a little kneading makes a good paste
-they used to make house bricks from it
in the old days
in fact, there’s a stream bed nearby
and they’d divert the cows to walk along
and mash up the clay, it’s called ‘puddling’-

I’m thinking of a deep and sticky relaxation
a break
an unwinding
and we could find some worms
in the softer soil
just play with them
hold them
pass them between us

Yes, it’s a stressful time
but this will be fun
– and…Plato’s ‘hour of play’ and all that?
