Something elemental is today’s NaPoWriMo prompt. My favorite element is earth.
I want to live smelling of dirt
with wildflowers growing from my head.
My kids will laugh
and say I’m already pushing up daisies.
They will pick some while I sleep
to place on their grandmother’s grave
and when I visit her there, I will recognize myself,
