Best Poem of moon batchelder

! Take Me!

take me! reclaim me!
o earth that has made me!
govern my being compleat
til you tame me,

your rhythms to keep,
your intents to pursue.
let me rise with the sun,
maybe cry with the dew,

may i rage with the thunder
and blaze with the noon,
and constantly change
like the face of the moon.

make my heartbeat to flow
with the pulse of creation,
govern each inflowing breath,
til the moment

you teach me to sleep.
then succombing with grace,
may i die in the winter,
by spring take my place

with the myriad ...

Read the full of ! Take Me!

A Life Well Lived

a life well lived is fraught with stains.
some are forever set,
and last beyond remembrance of their cause.
like grassy green on favorite jeans
or crimson wine on linen
or carpet marked by muddied puppy's paws.

so many cherished moments bind
themselves unto a stain.
