GREEN and living. Sunshine, rain. The soil. The spring. My mind and heart lift up in joy. The weight of winter. The dark and numb dead cold melt, dissolve, and are no more. Come rejoice with me. Come sing. Come dance barefoot in grass and dew. Embrace. Exalt. This chant, this ancient smile of earth, of life, Of God. © May 2014 by Patrick A. Rose.
