Speaking with Earth Spirits
Deep down, in the warmth of the fecund earth,
the spirits sing songs of life.
Hoping we hear, they inhale and exhale along with the seasons.
Now, in the cool days of November,
they sing to us of rest and replenishment
and ask us to be calm.
The time has come to listen
and of course, to rake the leaves…the leaves…
