Good Friday


Let us

plant lettuce

seed or soul

to green with burial

with birth or resurrection.

Potato crop from a Good Friday start.

Old farmers gathered on the church step

Easter Sunday comparing seeding oats

with another warm spring

twenty years ago

twenty centuries ago

beginning.

Happy Easter--

I'm jealous that Phil never visits Hannah to leave his precious poems. :)

Stole it anyway.

I really like the sense of time in this piece.

And may I add that this blog has the most, most lovely visuals!

Monica, he visits Hannah often, and reminds peeps it's there. ~grin~ And I just steal them from the blog for here.

And, Shelley, thank you, and it's wonderful to have you back!!

Well, all right. If we're all thieving, that's OK. :)
