National Poetry Writing month next month! I'm gearing up for it:


Daily Poem


Set out with a goal! A

DAILY poem. There's a thing.


So:How's Spring doing the other side of my duvet?

Well, there are flowers, and a yellow sun

Birds, catkins, and small things wandering through the ivy.


And that's just MY garden.


There's a stirring here, too, in my heart

The ultimate sense-gate that does more than beat, beat, beat ...


Perhaps, in another life, I was a queen, or a courtesan.

I like playing around with those women, who are STILL here:


But, and this is a homecoming, I love who I am

And contemplate with satisfaction, the divine ordinariness of this same-same day.
