10 Mother Earth


Sunwands turn rain droplets into blackberry drupelets
as enkindled okra seeds acknowledge heliocracy.
*
When God greengrows it's rarely in rows... awry the rye rises...unruly
the rose
*
Each night the tree of nut out of naught knits neat nuts
and will time soon not sever the nut tree knot?
*
The bee's favorite couplet: sunupbrimming buttercuplet
*
From the plane, one sees above the clouds' chemtrails
.. lines of Sanskrit...
*
as he walked along, he saw a
slain dandelion with grey locks
and blew the down of the mower victim
that there be new fluffy flower flocks
*
The tree branches God has joined together let no one cleave asunder.
The animal limbs God has joined together let
no meatcutter cleave asunder.
*
April is aproned with apricot blooms.
*
Because the wind rustled blooming fruit trees
they released their fresh fragrance into the breeze
*
Only the jasmine plant has a right to string garlands of
its blooms.
*
April is the most fragile month, when tender jade tenrils
can be crushed by unconscious boots
*
Why has God his dew morngift sent?
For cider, butterfly drinks,
for lilac and jasmine scent
*
The fen way becomes a fern way, finely traced fans of
jade.. waving in the wind.
*
The fruit tree oer the brook drops her free food into the
waters... the fish bob for apples
*
Those depressing stormclouds grey... wand the world to green
*
The orange tree... a green galaxy with many blazing
saffron sunorbs
*
The morning sun does the throat of lark spur and blue the meadows
with sweetest larkspur
*
While elsewhere the sun, universal lover,
has knit a new cover, of purplest clover, all the field over
*
Most can from the apple tree pick spies
but only God can pluck blazing stars from the skies
*
Like the beloved in a canoe paddled by her love is
the willow tree trailing her lacy fingers in the lake
*
When the naturalist who defines plants as wild edibles
comes around, do the plants shiver and shake, quiver and quake?
*
Some find peace most in the mountains. Some find peace
most at the sea. And some find peace most
in the mountains oer the sea.
*
Only newfallen laurel leaves in Wilbur's laureate wreaths
for he takes only what Mother Earth gently bequeaths
*
Within each acorn cloak are infinite oaks.
*
Inch across the yard the bright rays of dawn
Striking magic wands cause flowers in the lawns.
*
In the foothills of the Apennines old olive trees with grapes vined...make violet orbs of olivine... we think
of this in LA at Olive and Vine
*
Because he wanted Pennsylvania: both the silva and the pencil
he decided from nonwood to make his pencils.
*Guarding the sea's blue peace....are the brave souls of Greenpeace
==================
silva: forest in Latin
