A single word
That bursts in my mouth
Like the skin of a
Sun-warmed late-summer blueberry.
I chew the word, consider, and contemplate it.
Before I swallow it, I find myself
Stuck in a frantic blur of
My soul's own search
For the very truth
Waiting to be found
Buried in the sun-dried soil
Wrapped and tangled around
The roots of the late-summer blueberry.
