Blood is Thicker
(Sun Series #4)

Close to Heart

jasper pebbles
rest beneath the surface
each winter, rising
(almost unnoticed, rising)
slowly rising
through the rich black loam
to meet the sun and moon

all her lunar mothers
have known these ancient, flowing stones
and have held them close to heart
before their sacred spark

in this rich loam pasture
new goats do roam
among the rising stones
where she now makes her home

some say where goats do roam
kids are soon to follow
