Beltane Invocation

I'm calling you, wild

I'm coaxing you out of your snow-shell 

with my breath and green eyes

and longing for your leafy taste.

Demulcent rivers, swell.

Shocking bright eyelashes on trees, blink.

Dirt from the bear is shaken off, 

exchanged for bird seed and carrion.

Breaking skies, pussy willows, tease.

Kingfisher rattles and steals. 

The field is alive with change. 

I wrap hope around my neck and walk long walks

with friends

who find nettles. 

I eat the pollen laden alder catkins

inviting in every nuance.

The herons are feasting in the low waters

where phragmites glows like giant wheat

hiding eggs.

Stomp loud little bunny, wake her up

Shine hot bright sun, melt her heart

Cry in trills and thrills little peepers

sing her back

This is wonderful!!! It's great seeing others' poetry turned into an invocation with the connections of the plants. May the comings of Beltane be with you in fields of gold this year.
