Spring Summery

Last day of First Grade
For Son of Son –
Just days after his
Seventh birthday…

I picked him up so he could play
For some part of the afternoon
With Little Miss – For the most
Part they do play nicely together

Within Son of Son’s book bag
Was a booklet he had made – of his poetry
An acrostic of his name and one with Mommy
In the Middle and of course others about trucks

I think I’ll teach him about Efjie poems
Tomorrow – since both he and ‘sissy’ will be
Spending another long day here before they
Officially start their summer vacation with Mom.

I spied…
(Elfjie series)

On
Pheasant Hill
Loping red fox
Plays at dawn’s eighth
Hour

Below
The hill
Where daisy and
Lavender bloom; wild canary
Drink

On
A cloudy
Late spring morning
Before the thunderstorm
Breaks

absorbed and absent
(renga)

distracted by spring…
cleaning and the rain, I missed
another gem post

yesterday; rain continues
no outside play or walking

still dancing to my
music while packing away
my winter blankets

Warmed Weather

Already
In the
Nineties by nine
Summer has arrived – too
Early

I
Would like
Just a bit
More of spring for
Stepping…

In
Stages, yesterday
Slow and steady
The jungle was cut
Back

Now
With leaves
Upon the trees
There is a sanctuary
There

In
The shaded
Areas as the
Sun crosses the blue
Sky

Wavering Weather

A
Misty chill
Of spring rains –
At least trees are
Greening

Buds
Exploding, expanding
Changing the view
Creating a private garden
Haven

Perhaps
Tomorrow the
Grass will be
Dry enough to mow
Again…

What Spring Brings

Goldfinch
Or Warbler
Which yellow and
Black bird visits my
feeder?

One
Or the
Other or both?
Along with the
Regulars; woodpecker, wrens and
Doves

Will
The feeder
Distract the birds
From cabbage butterflies and
Dragonflies?

The
View from
The picture window;
Every moment is pure
magic

Currently Flowing; Air

Windy
Cold air
Chills my bones
Looking forward to spring
Blooming

Running
A few
Errands here and
There, but mostly stayed
Indoors

Yet
I still
Met my goal
Five miles stepped and
Danced
