May 4th

The sun has not quite defeated the morning chill
Still, I stand thin-sweatered in a spot of morning light
Not quite believing that the killdeer has finally hatched her nest
The best news I've had since the puddle I've waited three months to dry up
Has given up the ghost-cloud reflections
And sunk back into the earth

The birth and renewal of planet
My feet pad once again in open-toed shoes
The good news of resurrection in my heart
His art of spring

  3. Ben: Thanks a ton! Glad you are still keeping up with yours. Keeps me reading/thinking/writing.

    Superhero: Sorry for the remove friend, family friendly blog and all. :-) I wish I had a great answer for where I was, but again it can be all chalked up to slacking in my craft. I know at the beginning of this blog I said I was going to post daily, but it probably will be once a week tops.
