Opening the door I lean
to smell the subtle trail of spring it is the time of violet night of fading monochrome when the other half of my heart beats in echo time slipping through the layers of descending dark to leave its kiss

I stand in cool green
heart raging against evil
a prayer rises up

This seems the time
to tend one’s soul, not just resolve but looking out and seeing in, as dark recedes and light is growing in the mind and to the eye
Why does the spirit
need a reset? Dug, then redug like a garden, soil turned up to meet the light
The answer lies in
life’s renewal making fertile that inside us, ready to be open and receive the heady rush of spring
