The Stirring – (Double Ennead #2)

It’s hard to be patient

While looking for growth,

After the dark, dismal, bareness in Winter,

When nothing germinates

And all seems shutdown.


As the sky lightens up

The warmth of the sun,

Encourages the very, first buds of Spring,

Green shoots stretch and poke through

And all seems hopeful.


Buds bloom into flowers

With tender respect,

Producing plentiful fruits throughout Summer,

Then, crops for the harvest

And … all seems at rest.

(Double Ennead)
