“In the Garden at Dawn” one of the four poems picked for the dversepoets.com anthology that is Moon Bound in 2024.

In the Garden at Dawn

Dawn moon appears

Low in the eastern sky

Like an idiot’s grin

From cheek to cheek

A glow so intense

It startles the eye.

My hands deep in soil

Planting tender shoots of life

With reverence that feeds the soul

As seedlings feed flesh later to come.

There is God in this black soil

Earthworms and tiny bits of life

Independent of will or wishes.

Moonbeams spill on this tilled earth

Like a benediction or blessing

And bathes plants and planter with expectation,
