We're parting - I'm anxious. † † †  
Duties in Exeter call, a promise of fun with dear friend † †  
yet for me, firmly drenched in motherhood, it seems as if already ended. † † †  
†† † †
Fresh rain paints the skin of you, both a noisy vandal in the night and the ingredient for growing success. † † †  
I acknowledge, in my subdued form, the progression it is gifting it's energy to. † †  
†† † †
There's a youthful nature to the scent of rainfall, † † †  
as single drops drip down from the gutter as if a beat † †  
onto soil no longer broken by heat. † † †  
†† † †
The Amelanchier is undressing, it feels wrong leaving her stripping herself † †  
with no one to admire it, her blossom rotting on damp floor, † †  
single promises of yield. † † †  
†† † †
I sit beneath our lean to, the one he made with his father, † †  
the one I sit beneath with his daughter, and I hold myself in this movement of life. This gentle, paced journey where I no longer feel connected † †  
to the sisters, who have not yet endured † † †  
†† † †
such lonely birthing, nor to the fired creature I was before it. In the simplicity of this solitude, it does not scare me to not be truly in the pack. No, instead I aim to be unafraid of trying to be in it, † † †
of trying to enjoy what should be joyful to a normal woman. † †  
†† † †
"One more circle," I whisper, out loud or inward, perhaps both. "For grounding sake." - † †  
†† † †
Clematis, iris, late parrot tulips almost opening their face to me, † †  
anemones, daphne, daffodils falling away as if burnt out silver-screen stars, † †  
honesty, cornflower, forget me not athletes in their prime † †  
and then there's me here, nervous - creator, mother of life and land, protector. I can face a little other-life based joy.
