Here’s a poem …

Here’s a poem that (if you live in Central VT) starting in April you will be able to find posted up at That’s Life Soup in Montpelier for their annual Poem City event. 




When the glowing bulb strains to erupt through your soil:

hurt beautiful expansion.


Weep raw into tender seedlings

grow through uncomfortable ballooning of ripping tissues,

push through yourself,

molt your casing, step out from scarred wrapper

skin so fresh it burns.






fearlessly expose all of yourself


in the cooling rain of grace.


Nothing can touch you

when you touch everything.


Allow crocus.
