So, it’s April not May and there was snow on the ground this morning, but I can dream, can’t I:
Upon a Gardener in the Month of May
Kneeling and crouching, back breaking-
Creak, crack, “umph”
Elbow on knee- hand on knee,
-Lift, unbend, straighten.
Bones, tendons, joints and ribs,
Now unwound- were formed in darkness
And Brought to light,
Bones and flesh act as stems and leaves-
Broken to grow,
A seedling bends and bursts.
