Giant Earth

L.T. Garvin

The earth here

redeems itself in spring

stills itself

gazing graciously upon

the flight of cranes.

These lakes

now utterly thankful

sipping their own water

at high tea.

Open fields

thrust out

their green grassy arms

at the feet of rain

brimming with

ebullient life.

Not so rustic,

alas,

we deal with

incertitude

our seasons static.

Thunder plays her tambourine

as the woodwinds

hold cautious interludes

their breath as gigantic

as Big Bend

extending a carpet of oxygen

pumping the heartbeats

of giant earth.
