My tears glisten in the sunlight
And drop, nourishing the seed
That lingers within.
They streak my red cheeks
Making rainbows, sparkling
On my eyelashes.
A renewal has sprung forth,
New sprouts warmed-
Born from the tears of joy.

On this Earth Day, we celebrate 48 years of awareness about being kinder to our home planet….to protect our environment even in the wake of the horrible policies and environmental agenda of this country. This poem has many levels….a renewal of my garden, the earth and of me personally that always happens in spring with new growth.
The pictures are of early organic lettuce growing in my garden last year. With our cold spring I have not started my lettuce in the garden yet.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.
I leave you with a few additional words about A Renewal. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
