People are turning over the earth

these days,

but I’m just turning over thoughts.

This morning I turned over

several dozen, trusting

that something might spring up.

They lay inside me,

those fertile thoughts,

as the fullness of the day

dawned outside,

and there were signs of sprouting

as I taught the teenagers

at school

under a sunlit sky.
