Peeling bark and weathered twisted limb,
a climb where winter’s reckoning laid behind.
When soil has opened from its thaw
earth’s ripe for impregnation again.
Scent hangs languid with longing,
a wellspring of desire to be plowed,
sowed, and soaked with new offering.
Gifts from hands of humanity, I cultivate
terra firma, bestow my pneuma imprint
on nature’s canvas. This—the season
of my soul, the room of psyche,
the presence of spirit, unseen life from
behind the veil. Here in nature’s womb
I am reborn, renewed.
Poetry Month continues, and this is Day 12 of NaPoWriMo for me.
