The full sap moon
rises tonight
over warm air
and melting snow and
maple trees moving fast
beneath their bark
as sap rises from roots to branches.
 
Canadian Geese honk,
returning on this early
spring day,
while farmers start seeds in greenhouses
and fires in sugar houses,
breathing in soil and syrup, and
softening their own skin
so they, too, may grow
into a new season.
