Quiet Roar Of The Eastern Tiger

pollen on her back
and creation on her wings

The Work Of Faith


grain in the silo
barn full of hay
devotions made each day

Bee At Work


in the duty
of labor lies
the virtue of purpose

Time’s Labor

clouds and sun
snow’s toe hold of cold
all cultivating spring

in every grey day
light is always at work
moving towards a breakthough

Dwelling

the old barn
is history’s house
home of every season’s work

Considerations

scurry and hurry of gathering
or
savor the warmth of the sun

Eager to Work

Retired Workers

Rust may diminish their substance
but their labor has shaped
the land on which they rest.

Harvest


As the workers toil in the carpet of sage
they hum and buzz their dictum
“from each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs”
