.earth To Me... Poem by YURI DURAAN

.earth To Me...

Rating: 2.7

I am unreachable
floating amongst the stars
removed from all things mundane
- no soil on my hands
- no dust under my feet..
just light..
a whole sun full
a whole bucket of stars full

I am light.

Keep the salt for the blunderers
who trudge forward in a circle
toiling meaninglessly..
those who move rocks from one
mountain to the next

Let there be one man who will
climb a mountain to reach me,
to bring me a stone …

I shall give him of my light
and let him share the stars
for maybe this one night.

Very nice! ! Awesome imagery, especially floating in the stars. My only question is why bring a rock to you? I was thinking more like flowers, maybe chocolate. But I guess whatever floats your boat haha -david

Woman is shining in her, at the end, found identity.
