Spring

Why commit, she asks

Again?

Why push through obstacle

Beating sun, erratic rain, whipping wind

Beady-eyed Invaders and

The threat of those who may

Cut me down

Hacking through essential limb

All that time it took to grow!

Again

Why commit?

To opening tender, hidden center

Unfurling, reaching, receiving

Again

Why invite

Pollinators

Who dance with temporary passion

In heated summer mirage

Why

Commit

Again?

To this extraordinary

Alchemy

This focus of all lifeforce

Risen, pushed forth, creation

Expressed…Exhausted?

Over and over and over

This cycle

Why commit?

To emerge from safety of root and bud

Knowing

Again

It will grow cold

And this form

Will die

Dissolving back into Void

So far away from Sun’s garden

Hanging

Knowing

Again

It will

All

Return

To

Zero

Why commit?

To this great and effortful creation

Again

This great reaching out

Into material physicality

Again

Does the Springtime ask?

Again?

Does the bud

Remember

The

Zero?
