Spring Memories

Cherry-blossoms-Vancouver

I could tell you
of my love of
each spring –

The cherry
blossoms
speaking up.

The moon’s
first swim in
the pond out
back.

Blueberries
pausing for
muffins and
blintzes.

Finding
a stray dog to
introduce to the
summer rental.

And the bird
with one note –
bless it.

How do we
bear summer
when spring
is so rich with
the good and
the good?

Amid the Vast

bird in flight PMD 8 21 17

I was searching
the green, the blue,

the white, the wind
and now, the darkening

sky. I wanted answers,
but found only god’s

open suitcase left behind
in this forest of woven

limbs and shuttle birds.
And there amid the vast,

I leaned into my own
winding path leading

me home . . . someday.
