April 30, 2013

monarch butterflies;
cherry blossoms; bumblebees.
I can only dream.

so, all day raking
make way for green, fragrant grass
then. this morning. snow.

oh joy! spring has sprung!
swelling branches, buds, spouts, shoots;
the smokers return.

garage roof scrambles
little does the squirrel know
demolition soon

is it wrong to dream
of beer and deer for breakfast
post wildlife siting?

blinding golden beams
tulips pushing up, too bad
it is silent spring

refracted light shines
off the metal window, back,
back at my wistful face

fast and furious,
ye be gone, April blizzard.
some sign. something. please.

will blossoms abound?
when will the irised open?
take back the city.

April 16, 2013 (another)

sweet, cheap carnations
window sills, table tops, stools
i'd rather lilacs

April 16, 2013

pulses racing, run
fresh air, flying limbs, pace, pace.
bombs and blood end all.

fractured, crispy ice
splintered veins, thickness feigned.
glacial water rush.

April 14, 2013

softer day outdoors:
subtle, drying, gentle wind.
step, slip, crackle: ice!

April 13, 2013

puddle lake sewers,
steady stern snow, crushing ground
we missed Grayson's show

April 12, 2013

simple seed packets
trowel, gloves, dirt; digging hands
forecast is blizzard

girl walking wet dog
gritty pavement, melting snow
joy, bursting with spring.
