Land Lovers

Those who love the earth
with both feet on solid ground
will venture across the plains
climb the mountains
explore the caves
harvest on plowed terrain
terre bella, loma vista , terra firma
fin esterra, words to describe the land
from beach to countryside
preferring the still quiet of a summer’s eve
sitting on top of a hill watching the waves
below, never longing to be a 
deep in the sea or a bird
floating on air currents 
ever thankful 
to be buried six feet 
underground when it is time to go.
