Hildegard’s Viriditas* — A Haiku

Springtime easters buds
enigmatically and
sings viriditas.

*Viriditas: greening

“O most honored Greening Force,
You who roots in the Sun;
You who lights up, in shining serenity,
within a wheel
that earthly excellence fails to comprehend.
You are enfolded
in the weaving of divine mysteries.
You redden like the dawn
and you burn: flame of the Sun.”
— Hildegard von Bingen, Causae et Curae
