March – week 3

savouring

the simplicity of this moment

daisies return to the lawn

~

spring’s first iris

I watch her unfold

her blue kimono…

the comfort of rituals

in this shaken world

~

year of the rabbit

every strand of coarse hair

tipped with sunlight

~

streaked with rose

the rabbit’s listening ears…

spring light

~

like lanterns

the breasts of bullfinches

glow in the trees

~

spring breeze

skipping over the stones

of a clear, blue sky

a copper-breasted chaffinch…

hope is on the wing

~

spring in the garden ~

me and the daffodils

take our fill of sunlight

~

weeks I have walked

under low cloud

at last, the rays

of this closest star…

daffodil

~
