breaking ground (solo no renga)

pulling weeds
knees kiss the ground
beneath the cedars

scent of life on my fingers
planting seeds row on row

 day after day
like a  mother in wait,
shoots breaking ground

      1. Yep, I hear you. Where I live the ground is hard and clay mixed not like the black earth in my hometown. But still did not want to wear gloves. That is like washing your new born with gloves!

      2. I do wear gloves because some plants are sensitive to the chemicals in our skin and the products we put it but that doesn’t help. I end with dirt under my nails anyway.
