127/366 - From Dirt & Back to Dirt

2012.05.06

Like a pig in mud.

Lesson Learned: Listen to your inner child - get dirty and don't worry.

Watch and listen.

For The Love of Mud

In these later years – very
Much like the early ones
I am reduced to – dependent on
Foolishness and fantasy…

Ecstasy of dirt – grime
Needing it more and more…
A sensual feel - my body
Weathering insults – defying them

Saltiness and its dry tightness
Its stinging feel in a slice – an eye
My head full of nonsense
Imagining duels and victories

Bluntness of a rock to a bone…
Whip of a branch to my face
Loss of control – on my knees
I am alive – getting back up.

Annbramwell Ooooh, lovely! Have you ever heard the Hippopotamus song?

Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
And there let me wallow in glorious mud....

If you are going to get dirty, you may as well do it properly and you have excelled yourself here Dan... lovely post!
