Calling


Torn between overflowing

coral bells on one side, and a haze

of pale blue, yellow-starred

forget-me-nots on t’other,

I let myself be torn,

laughing with March hares

and birdsong awakening fields.


Red oak leaf buds unfurl,

await the heightening sun,

their chandelier clusters dangling

against clear sky. Heart-shaped

Miner’s lettuce speckles,

while warm yellow heads

beckon, “Taste us!”


Earth’s waters have burst.

Everything is calling

in its depth

to our depth.


Orange, black wings latch

onto veined meadow flowers

stilled by sweetness,

hanging on moments of

bliss.
