it is not like
the world would end
if we, skin close
with the warming
soil, remembered
what it was
to be in love
with each arcing
seed unfurling
on spindle stems –

to know the
touch of spring
in saplings full
ready to push leaves
to a waiting sky –

to taste the season
in pods
crisp green
with fallen rain.

it is not like
the world would
end if we
remembered
how to live
skin close.

  1. There’s something special about a close-up of rain drops on leaves, almost as though the leaves are weeping.
    I enjoyed your poem and I’m glad our prompt at the right time for you. 🙂
