New Earth By barbara Leonhard

The summer’s remaining bounty, 
harvested for the season’s last soup.
Though the sun is low,
fruit grips the vine, and kale fights

like a hardy sapling. Dusty leaves, 
clinging to the mother’s branch,
are seized by swirling breeze,
buried under winter ice.

This is the time to turn the soil –
for the soul to sleep with the ashes –
Where it’s cold, 
there is deep healing.
