scratch the surface

Scratch at the surface of the land

feel the soil run through your hand

What is it that you see?

I see two eyes and they see me

Pull back the debris

You cant ignore its plea

uncover the skin

and find the treasure  that lies  within

The earth unfolds her secrets to share

plentiful harvest is out there to spare

Prolific supplies that nature has stored

the time is right to release her hoard

colours, splashed across the landscape

and the horned one begins to shift his shape

memories of summer, shatter and splinter

preparing for the trials of winter

a gentle celebration in case the sleeping Goddess wakes

covering of old scars and a healing of mistakes

as she rests and listens to the earth, as her  voice begins to soar and sing

ever ready to bound relentless into the coming spring.
