Heads in the garden

Eyes closed

as they emerge

from the dirt

 

smooth with the sheen

of element

 

upturned to lead

the way for what has grown

from roots with tendrils

sunk into the otherworld

 

considering the context

of godhead,

they do not look

out of place

 

why should not the gods

sprout heads from the earth?
