If you pause knee-deep in crimson clover

on a sunny spring day

you will hear the buzzing of honeybees at work

you will feel the growing earth around you

a spider’s web will tickle across your face

as you clothe yourself in trees

a handiwork of leaves

woven into the sky between the sunlight

the world is at work

awake, alive, and inviting
