we used to sit crosslegged in bliss
clad in overalls
foraging abundant wriggling tendrils
under cover of oak, we dig deep
earth squeezed between our pudgy toes
discovering the sought-after
held aloft by fingers caked in mud
until a sudden decade races by

today we dig deep for meaning
foraging for life
the monotonous minute hand speeds
hours to days, years to a lifetime
dreading until our internal clocks
suddenly tick the last tock.

Heidi - Great poem. While reading it, I was mentally in your front yard with you and Lauren!
