plants rise & kiss my knees

Updated: May 26, 2020

April 25-29 week 2/72

tentatively they have been waiting

cozily tucked in beneath a layer of leaf mulch

then suddenly, as if awakened by the

scampering feet of three young chipmunks,

leaf and twig gathering of nesting cardinals,

lily pads unfurling beneath the swoop of swallow wings

or the seesaw of days filled with sun then rain

calico asters, hyssop and wild bergamot

push decaying maple and oak leaves aside

rising overnight to kiss my knees
