Magpie 284 - The Elixir of All Things Living

Magpie 284 writing prompt

we've come to fullness.   We come to the clay shaped 
by the hands of God.      To folds of earth, to mountains chiseled, 
                                                                 to white vapor on blue linen.
        We taste the sky, the earth in alchemy...  
                     salt, the shaker,            the maker of all things green.
The sweetness of grass, 
                        the sent of moss, 
                the raw of iron
             and we taste an elixir of something monumental in the air;
                                                                             sweet nectar of God.
