Come sow the seeds of a new season with us at Old Frog Pond Farm & Studio on Sunday, May 19, from 1 to 5 p.m. Twenty-five artists will be unveiling their 2019 sculptural installations at the Opening Reception for Around the Pond and Through the Woods.
by Joanne DeSimone Reynolds
Opening a furrow with his thumb
And again in a more measured
Motion marking dimples . . .
A man’s fist
Is a womb full of seed . . .
Each passing through the narrows
Between his finger
And the thumb that sets it deeper
For as many as come . . .
Empty now his hand cups the earth into a mound
A gingered warmth an imprint meaning
I have known you . . . I know you
As in our final ceding . . .
Closing it to finch and jay.
