100114 silent spring


as long hot summers go away
prepare in fleeting light of day
when suns of ours transcend our sight
reserve our stories for the night

i wait, patient in the dark
with tinder, match and heat of spark
for hands that will ignite the flame
burning place and people, same

do more than hope to meet our needs
winter stratifies soul and seed
prepare to sprout, come silent spring
embrace the fight for life it brings

we, who love with every breath
welcome pain, do not fear death
in time, we shed our civil reason
to turn in, lock-step with the seasons
