on spring. a poem.

i love it when the rain falls

hard on the clods of dirt left all over the yard

the day before

melting them into the ankle high grass

thick with the thrill of spring

and all the hacks of my shovel

and all the sore in my hamstrings

and all the cuts on my arms

feel worth it

because of the rain

smoothing it all into place

After the stone rolls away. A poem.

after the stone rolls

away the heart longs for

wind

to fill its droopy sails with joy and

point

doubts toward a horizon

straight and narrow,

certain

with a harsh line of hope that

carries it through

roiling

waters, until the sun

sets.
