spring & trust

For all its false starts and drama,
spring delivers such mindblowing magic;
from bladethin tomato seedlings
unfolding toward the sun
to the cream colored foal that appeared
in our neighbor’s pasture overnight,
life begins to suddenly happen.


Nothing can explain the idea of faith
to me the way growing food can;
to sprinkle sandlike seeds on the ground,
to bury them, water them, and leave them
alone. To trust them,and trust
what it is they do. To trust
that April's turned & planted ground
will become an edible jungle by August.
