The Things That Bring Us Back To Life

The seeds pop, crackle and burst
sprouting their leap to the waiting ground

as Earth sings for her new beginnings
stretches her fingers to stroke memories
of lush fields, of wildflowers, of laughter

This is what Love can do
It can revive the deadened heart and brush the sadness from view

and if there is a kiss, it would feel, as the first,
brand new

and listen as she chants to the white flower dancers,
'You is a seed, We is a flower
I is a heat, Us is a fire'
