Day 40: The great in-breath

And so

The great in-breath happens

But I do not know

How long I can keep inhaling

Before my lungs burst

With excitement

Spring is nearly at her culmination

When the Sun God’s advances make way for

Reckless fecundity

And the Earth Goddess cannot

Repel His advances

But welcomes in the love

I swept the stone circle

Then watched with pleasure

Cherry blossom fall

Onto the smooth brown soil

We had a little rain

In the night

The green grass

So parched of moisture

Instantly glows neon

Verdant and fresh

And the smell!

Rhizomes and lichens and worms and

Frantic photosynthesis

I never knew my garden

Took rain and turned it into

Scent
