Only in the Dirt, can Answers Rise

First the
then geese –
Now, freezing rain.
Hello April

oh Good Jesus
thy will be done –
Snow v. Spring

Pull me from human values
green light, soft-gentle- breeze –
Thy Will, oh beautiful risk

Dirtied hands
good dirty hands, sore back
i work the shifts, your name is close

This spring…
your spring… –
Thy will be Done

The time is nearing
– this journey learned
I will travel more, thy will

oh Good grey spring
white, into rain
Rain into colours-flow!
