A Calling: Poetry for Thursday ~

Deep inside
I hear a calling
When the hostas unfurl
Green leaves color the trees

 I am drawn like a moth to a flame
Drawn to the dirt
Digging into the earth
Moving plants
Sowing seeds
Planting perennials
Planning gardens
Dreaming of a labyrinth
All it takes is spring green
A sunny day

And I am off
So, if you try to call
I will be outside
Like generations before me
I learned
From my father, my grandfather, my grandmothers
To touch the earth
Is to touch life
Sacred moments
                     in the mountains
