I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

In Spring She Dreams

for Jess

In Spring she dreams a sunflower,
thinking it an augury of growth,
but it does not appear.

Come Summer and it blooms
suddenly, singly, from nowhere,
in the garden where the women gather.

That evening in the circle
she leads the meditation,
flowering into her fullness.
