Bloom to Bloom by Ann Decker

Bare branches of saplings

flutter in the cooling breeze.

Seeds float gently to the earth

as we murmur in the key of C.

Daffodils poke their heads

to catch flickering sun rays.

Birds chatter as we plant,

expectantly, on this March day.

Hedge parsley, bluebell,

wild foxglove, garlic mustard.

Plug each young plant green,

with fingers rooted in the earth.

Primrose flowers beckon yellow,

at one with the urban landscape.

Bees collect nectar bloom to bloom

and inadvertently pollinate.

Quick, repeat this moment,

one million trillion times.
