Heart-Work by Vivi Steels
Crystal birdbath presages clear night –
stars in their right places
shining ladders of light to flowers,
closed until dawn
when dew washes
all dark away.
The day unfurling its leaves,
springs into the business of bees,
radiating a golden honey-glow,
filling the body with sweetness,
the spirit with hope
lured by the charms
of a new day.
