What gives

Turning over soil, making room for new roots.

Dirt under my fingernails.

The young leaves of the watermelon plant

eaten by tiny slugs.

No watermelon summer.

The light pushes into the ground,

reflects off of the leaves.

Everything's glowing, growing.

Sometimes, you have to stay very still

and allow yourself to be tended to

by loving hands, to bloom and give.
