#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

 Skunk cabbage

 Skunk cabbage

If you see beyond an ugly

name of a wild plant blooming

you'll touch the heat inside

a marsh, mucky in spring

the way a heart might open

like a window into shelter

A season needs to give

first – bodies, warmed 

for foraging, for flight

A hive wants a traveler

who returns with elixir
