sweet anticipation led to insomnia
she rose before dawn
and dressed in the dark

 

 

 

 

 

 

hiding in the magnolia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

moving forward

Just before the green begins there is the hint of green
a blush of color, and the red buds thicken
the ends of the maple’s branches and everything
is poised before the start of a new world,
which is really the same world
just moving forward from bud
to flower to blossom to fruit
to harvest to sweet sleep, and the roots
await the next signal, every signal
every call a miracle and the switchboard
is lighting up and the operators are
standing by in the pledge drive we’ve
all been listening to: Go make the call.

~ Stuart Kestenbaum
“April Prayer”

Sometimes you get lucky and you discover that perfect poem…I read this on my friend Shawna’s Site and had to share it with you.

I made the call.

Hello May

So good to see you!

as May ends…

pink rain

cherry blossom snow

hurray!

joy!

Blossoms are scattered by the wind
and the wind cares nothing,
but the blossoms of the heart
no wind can touch.
