The Rebirth of the Earth


Weep not for the soil overturned,

a sweet, delicate renewal

since the most ancient of times

confirming our calling

to pick berries in the fields

we are strengthened,

we are filled

as our spirits

Two Roses


Roses often seek each other, as they open themselves to the sun,

the tenderness of petals touching, inspiring us

calling us to love, looking past

each other’s thorns.
