Spring

 

As the springtime warms
the aggie and cat’s eye roll
on the playground grass

~~~

Just five inches down
a layer of frost remains
holding back the bulbs

~~~

two robin’s spring bath
splash water from garden pond
full of melted snow

~~~

On my neighbor’s porch
a plastic Easter lily
usurps Santa Claus

~~~

Little girls red boots
running from boys holding worms
-pure squealing delight

Spring (3/27/2019)

The warm wind pulls me
                        out into the springtime sun
                                                     looking for lilies

Turning to Spring

As the snow melts, I can hardly wait for winter to be over!

 

In yellow flowers
a bumble bee sings his song
floating in the breeze

          ~

As I cut the grass
a leopard frog hops away
annoyed by the sound

          ~

dark clouds dim the sky
children struggle with swim towels
left on line to dry

          ~

Swallows dive at me
as I walk under their perch
warning me away

          ~

My pale arms and legs
provide a perfect target
for hot summer sun
