This Blade of Grass

This blade of grass

holds the key to life

You say, “I”

I say, “Me”

We say, “Thee”,

this blade of grass

is key.

This blade of grass

a sword do slice

crevasses the earth

a canyon, a kingdom

a crevice to pass,

the key to life

lives in this grass.

This blade of grass

you cut

I grow

we walk atop 

we do not know,

the key to life

exists below.

This blade of grass

holds the key to life

large it looms 

small yet vast

a mighty mast,

this blade of grass.

Green not seen

the steeple

the spire

the tower

implying,

a key to life

from heaven sent.

The daily gazette

of green grass bent

to shoot at stars 

with arrowed blades,

the key to life exist 

in spades.
