Merry Old Month of May: 12-Survival

Daily Prompt:  Survival



Is it bottled water

and flats of canned beans,

Or is it poems and art,

deep rest,

a walk in the trees,

a hand in the dirt,

a long eye-gaze,

a light touch on the arm,

a word of praise?

Bread matters,

but is it possible…

might love matter more?
