The House of Spring


The house of spring is being closed.

The tulips, daffodils and irises have bloomed.

The lawn is a rain-soaked jungle green.

But everyone wants a beach house now.

Sun. Sand. No flowers or grass. Ocean.


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.
