fantast kinship effuses profound import
transcendent primordial foragers gather
when smokey, fired flames were enmist
bearing seeds from freshly torn earth
tall, blonde tornado blows briskly by
re-planting green hearts in soiled muds
reaching into moribund dairied cradles
shaking sleepers consciences awake
seminal strands of cow, pig, fish, bird
escape a carnivorously plagued culture
reclaiming their savory hidden Hesperides
shangrila and eden; Islands of the Blessed.
