hail ima of earthly origin
hallowed be yo’ name

who harvests the sun
from which life becomes
in human continuity
as it were in the womb

gift us always
new opportunity
to grow in gratitude
as we work to know
our urge to nourish

and lead us away
from intellectual

for thine is
the intuition
the cultivation
and the process

i speak these
thangs in
carolyn’s name
