Richard Benton……………………………………………. The Zen Landscapist Explains His Power

_________________________________________________

Earth owns my soul

I have no ego

I glide over land and plant myself like a tree.

Then my hands are branches

Softly greeting other branches

My feet are roots

Feeling throughout the ground

From there I sense all at once.

If I turn my eyes inward

It’s to prod my love outward

I don’t have an ego anymore.

This is something I just give

So that my sight

Spreads a silver dew on the land my soul

Plants its trees, plants me, upon

To love.
