Dig (Poem by Alfred K. LaMotte)


You don’t need to take
a journey into the wilderness.
You need to take a journey
into the back yard.
The mountaintop
is wherever you are.
Angels of dew.
Forests of moss.
Cathedrals of clover and
Galaxies whirling in black loam.
Grand destinations for the eremitic
visionary earthworm.
Now dig.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
