After the Rain Blues

Even the new plants in the garden

have had enough of the spring rain.

Winter lingered. True spring passed us by.

Warm, moist, green jumped to May summer.

Brushing rosemary and sage scents the air.


Robins brush their wings against window screens

attacking reflections of their own nesting instincts.

They started nesting in the pine tree

outside the bedroom window under our gaze.

Today, three blue eggs match the sky.

Summer in a Day

In a cold spring,  just one day.

Hot blue sky sun has me thinking

summer with the leaves, bees and ants.

But I need to bring plants inside

tonight and turn on wintertime heat again.
