Shovel and Earth

A task to concentrate hand and mind

soil so tough and dry that no sweep

of hose nor dapple of water transforms

this still solid ground. All that remains

is shovel and earth to dig each small

spot of dusty dry which harbours

no thing beneath the surface. And so

I work, and with each breath of space

life returns.
