March – week 3


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…
