april (snow) showers

walking in sandals as the snow flies
unhurried flakes drift down
quietly reminding me that nothing is for certain

return to center

in the white hair stuck to my jacket
and the ache and soaring of hearts
eight years melts into never

shy boy and rabbit

sitting in the cool sunshine
frog-chorus singing in time to pony feet
i think of you and your wild horse waiting

prayers for rain

warm storm-winds kiss the sky
slate grey and heavy
making April feel like high summer

windows wide open
clearing space
as the green begins to show

new digs

dawn walking with Emma-dog,
i look up to find the source of a beautiful song
and see our friend has replaced the broken nesting box

my room smells faintly of coffee
the armchair by the window beckons
and an afternoon melts between the pages

she goes up to collect her ribbon
shell-shocked and not really hearing the cheers
she shakes hands with someone famous

Friday, April 1, 2011


the day starts like any other
but maybe the birds are singing a bit louder
and the air smells of spring
