Speaking with Earth Spirits



Amsonia foliage sparkles in fall

Speaking with Earth Spirits 

Deep down, in the warmth of the fecund earth,
the spirits sing songs of life.
Hoping we hear, they inhale and exhale along with the seasons.

Beautyberry in November

Now, in the cool days of November,
they sing to us of rest and replenishment 
and ask us to be calm.


Molinia stands tall in late fall

The time has come to listen
and of course, to rake the leaves...the leaves...
