Spring #1

 First spring poem this year

Sitting outside,

Blossoms on the nearby cherry trees

Flowers on the bush to my side.

Looking at the beauty around me,

While my nose runs

And my throats gets scratchy.

Ignore the minor discomforts of allergies

And focus on spring, 


The clear blue sky.

A light cool breeze,

The warmth and growth surrounding me.

Savoring the moment.

As a bird near me chirps 

A response comes from across the street

and a musical conversation begins.

Call and response

The birds stop singing .

And i hear cars again,

And the murmur of a conversation behind me.

A couple walks by

I sit



In this space and time

Wishing it could last forever.
