Shattered petals fall
Scattered confetti of pink silk
Roses after the rain.
Deep as blood the sap moves
thru the branches to each new bud.
Life reaches forward, upward and out-
life redeems life – a resurrection of now.
Every living thing breathes
the newness and promise of more.
Living is moving -living is seizing the air-
singing molecules of being through each pore,
to the unknown song ,
the holy litany of life.
