Seeds struggling
against the sod.
Breaking through,
into seedlings
striving towards light
and life.
Hear the earth moan,
hear the seeds groan.
You can almost feel the pain
Of Nature’s birth,
the struggle towards
new life,
new cycle.

By Brenda Braene

Poor little Phil!
All he wants
Is a long winter’s nap.

The yelling, the commotion
Hands yank him out
Of his warm burrow.
Raise him to the cameras
And he pees down the
Handler’s leg in fear.

Darcy Arliss dedicates her life to the gifts of Brigid.
