BECOMING GROUND

elderly-woman-1036773_960_720

Steps were heavy

Growing heavier

Taking more effort

Making her slower

A shaking began

More of a tremor

With each footfall

Was a tidal wave

Of fluid motion

Her years kept her

Clung to her bones

And held her tight

She was caught

Underneath gravity

Sink

ing deeper

Into the ground

Becoming

The ground
