Let All the Earth

Truth springs up from the earth, and righteousness smiles down from heaven. — Psalm 85:11, NLT

Through leather my fingers grasp

the soil, plow a tiny portion 

of ground, the sun warms

my back countering

the sensation of cold dirt

still waking from winter’s

slow-released breath, 

but the pear trees know,

the white blooms announced

an end to frost a few days ago,

and so bees buzz, butterflies

dance, and I lean in — just one

more of God’s creatures 

getting reacquainted with earth.

—C.L. Fisher, April 2022
