imagine that knowing.


It never ceases to amaze me, each year

the earth's knowing.


The flowers know to bloom,

the grass knows to grow,

the birds know to sing,

the sun knows to linger.




the leaves know to fall,

the rain knows to become snow,

the bears know to hibernate,

the sun knows to hide.


It astounds me,

this series of small miracles that happen over

and over,

every year,

never for the same audience.


Stability, reliability, wisdom, trust.


The earth knows.

Imagine that knowing.
