The silent, subtleties of

Natives with neural activity

around these relatives

Boom to the ears of the corn

blast to the beans temples

and cuddle the cotyledons

Seeds with technology and instinct

KNOW

 

Then they swoon into the soil

Caress and cradle

roots spread

And stir

With dirt in between

Swollen bulbs

 

Feeling the weight of a

Tender energy

Guide down and deep

For they know it’s time

To germinate

And validate

What they were born for

 

To gift

To nourish

And to continue a cycle

Of some kind

Perspiring preparation

Laughing anticipation

leads to a new season

of hope

 

The water is ready

and

The sun has not come

Soon enough
