Silent Talk


each morning
sweet greetings
in the tender look

Wonder of the Wallow


being one with
the great fertile earth
oh the magic of mud

Earth’s Wrinkles

water is the earth’s skin
wrinkled by the cold
marks and ridges telling time
the oldest story ever told

Mourning Cloak

before the flowers flower
the butterfly blooms

Mud


The fifth season is mud season.
The earth is liquid with rain and snow melt,
rich with nutrients and brimming with the beginnings of new life.
Magnificent primordial ooze.
