30 days into April

blue sky and sunshine
ninety minutes before dusk
grey rain all day long
..
even on the darkest day
light lifts eventually

29 days into April

the cold wind got up
who left the north door open-
will swallows turn back

28 days into April

beneath the
new
green canopy
.
bluebells nod
we
breathe away stress
.
wanderers
smile
as celandines
.
acknowledge
wood
anemones
.
we slowly
tread
in nature’s place
.

blackbird listens
finds dried mealworm
no sound

25 days into April

      Two weeks after Easter and the weather turns wintery even though we had a mini heatwave last week. Here in my room yellow roses bloom in a vase and finally my cactus puts on a bright pink show.

my easter cactus
flowers fingering forward-
rain and hail outside

22 days into April

comfort of spring lane
cushioned by new green hedges-
cyclists less exposed

horse chestnut pink buds
release small unfingered gloves-
all summer to stretch
