In honor of Spring and the new growth I see in my life, I thought I’d share one of my poems as this week’s post. Enjoy!
Winter has lived in me as surely
as it has iced this plot of ground.
I held my breath and went under,
seeking comfort in the burning
of my lungs.
the soil exhales as a crocus breaks the surface.
It slides with a sigh down the incline
on all sides of the greening.
It eases down and around
a fern’s spiral periscope.
Ants tickle over its sandy skin.
An earthworm licks an undulating path.
am a part of it all–
crocus and fern,
ant and worm,
learning to breathe
with the soil.
