I feel so chilly
Sitting here at the table
Without companions.

Sunday, April 29, 2012


Seems so far away,
The warmth of the summer months.
This spring is too cold.

Saturday, April 28, 2012


An absence of clouds
Does not guarantee warmth.
Spring is still chilly.

Friday, April 27, 2012


Even at midday,
Ducks have their beaks tucked away,
Taking a long nap.

Thursday, April 26, 2012


Outside my window
A heron seeks grass and twigs.
Is she building a nest?

Wednesday, April 25, 2012


Good food can be found
At a gathering with friends.
A feast and fun times.

Tuesday, April 24, 2012


The weather report
Tries hard, but is often false.
Better not to read.

Monday, April 23, 2012


One day there is rain,
The next, the sun shines too warm.
Spring is so fickle.

Sunday, April 22, 2012


Little drops of rain
Tickle my face as they fall.
I don't mind at all.

Saturday, April 21, 2012


Strawberries and cream,
A delightful summer treat.
I count the days down.

Friday, April 20, 2012


Silly little games
Pleasantly waste afternoons.
At times, simple's best.

Thursday, April 19, 2012


As the wind howls,
The cat dashes in your path,
You think, "What a storm."

Wednesday, April 18, 2012


The students' chatter
Brings back many memories.
I am feeling old.

Tuesday, April 17, 2012


The smell of coffee,
Rich, dark, tempting, inviting.
I will rest here some.

Monday, April 16, 2012


Water in moonlight
Shimmers like obsidian.
It's a different world.

Sunday, April 15, 2012


Picked on by the gods,
One can only beg mercy
That falls on deaf ears.

Saturday, April 14, 2012


Nevermind the spring.
Life goes on heedless, unkind.
I'm already dead.

Friday, April 13, 2012


Such feelings of loss,
Despite this season of growth,
Are sharp and acute.

Thursday, April 12, 2012


Snowflakes on flowers-
Quite the unexpected sight!
But that is our spring.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012


A sleeping puppy;
Chest gently rising, falling.
I feel envious.

Tuesday, April 10, 2012


Fireside coffee
Sipped with the bright rising sun.
Relaxing morning.

Monday, April 9, 2012


Shining dew settles
While the early sun rises
Over lush green grass.

Sunday, April 8, 2012


Many religions
Long ago converged on this day,
And called it Easter.

Saturday, April 7, 2012


Eager flowers bloom;
Daffodils and bright tulips.
Quite the welcome sight.

Friday, April 6, 2012


Now that spring is here,
And the weather is normal,
We await summer.

Thursday, April 5, 2012


As the sun comes out,
All the birds begin to sing,
And the breeze picks up.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012


A chirp and a flop;
A bundle of fur upside down.
Kitten fell over.

Tuesday, April 3, 2012


It was cold, raining.
Now I'm safe in my new home.
Where the heater works.

Monday, April 2, 2012


Things fall and crash while
Kitten explores his new home.
The joys of moving.

Sunday, April 1, 2012


New place, new shelter.
It is like an adventure.
Soon it will be home.
