Sunday Gardening – SOL #12 – 2017


Fingers ease deep into the dark rich soil

Moist clumps break easily in my hands

Thank you endless winter rains

For softening my garden earth

Depositing bits of sand, mineral and grit

To support my tenuous seeds, stems, leaves

Providing a rooting place for what will grow

What needs to grow

What needs your stability and incubating space

To flourish, go deep and climb higher and higher.

Dark, rich soil, giver of life

Landing place of seeds

Foundation of growth

Foundation of my soul.

    I was able to get outside and work in the dirt today, also. I love the way you described it. I wish there was more time to play in the dirt.
