Wind and Rain

Water weeping from the sky
settles dust 
and though newly cut,
blades lift up,
        gently blowing grass
Rain isn’t always storm
nor windy weather, hurricane
Sometimes a ghost moon
lingers into day, 
its shape a shadow 
against the sky
        just whispering
Darkness isn’t always blind
nor daylight empty of stars

The heart’s shaped chambers
open and close,
a living muscle
and muscle requires living,
        struggle not languor 
Not every seed becomes a fruit
nor every planter, a gardener
