Poem: "May Everything"

This is the linkback perk for today's Poetry Fishbowl. It was written outside the regular prompt calls. It fills the "Eight of Vessels - Rebirth" square in my 4-30-19 card for the Tarot Bingo fest. Comment that you have boosted the signal for the fishbowl to reveal a verse.

"May Everything"

Late spring,
and the rains
have brought life.

On the barren ground
comes a surge of rebirth,
anticipated and brilliant.

A raw black patch of dirt
swarms with sudden leaves.

The spackle of round flecks
is the first sign of clover.

After it, grass sprouts
like green pins.

The leaves lengthen
and unfurl into a carpet
of variegated emerald.

April showers bring
May everything.
