“Red Earth”

A poem exploring themes related to alchemy.

Was earth red
in the beginning?
Was the planet always blue,
or did it once resemble Mars
twinkling beyond the moon?
Was it There and Then
(Where and When)
the Root of Knowledge grew?
Did golden apples glisten 
in the silver limbs
of Diana’s tree?
Did we eat because
all the dirt was red,
so we didn’t believe
that earth could be dead?
