I Am Grass

I am Grass

By Marilyn Kortemeier

I am Grass

I am the life that spans the globe.

From the steppes of Russia

To the veld of Africa

From the pampas of South America

To the prairies of North America

I am Grass

I am a seed in one place

A sprouting plant in another

A growing blade in another

The blooming and seed making grass in another

The withering dried grass in another

Burning into ash and smoke in another

I am Grass

I am the life from which so many others spring

I am the food for antelope

And for deer and for buffalo

And for many others

And through them for those that eat them.

I am the source of food that supports the others

I am happy to cover the earth

I am happy to have the sun rise and set

On me at the same time.

I am happy to be hot and cold at the same time

To have winter and summer together.

I am happy to be the food of all

I am Grass

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!

Asan: The book has the great ending. I almost like your writing style and like your story.I want to read more your booksKeep going in this style😉😉😍

Terri: I love this story, the characters, and flow. I can’t wait for Lisa’s story, what happens with Adele. Will she get to stay? Can’t wait for next story.

jessejoe91: I like that I could relate to all the poetry that I've read so far. I would recommend this book to my friends who love poetry

Amanda Lynch: There are a couple loose ends that I feel should've been handled by now. Additionally, some of the time jumps don't make a lot of sense. What happened at Eric's birthday party? When did they let Tempo go? Why does she have such a weird name?

Ted Yellow: A beautiful collection of poems that come with random messages about life. The use of metaphor is amazing and adds to the overall beauty of the poems. A little more attention to the use of punctuation can make it even better!

Tarun: A must read story for every couple❣️.....i was crying at the end🙁.....but its the best story ...😍😇.....

cathrine: Overall I liked the poem, it's style of sync and especially the emotions.

alicia: As always I love your books, just finished all your completed stories and I can say it made waking up today a lil bit more special. Thank you

kittyloverinsca: This was a great book but I just wasn't expecting it to be that short so not to be bossy or anything but next time try to make it a little bit longer but overall it was wonderful.

heironymousridiculous: Do I love you more because one of your parents was a narcissist? Or was it always that crumpled, refracted, white trash inheritance besieging my negative attachments until I’d eaten up all my carefully rationed self-esteem? Of course I was insane with hunger. Of course you never meant to hurt me ...

laceyE56: It was a great book!!
