A few days ago, Micah was the happiest boy on the planet.
Maxine was not so sure.
For a while, I hovered indoors,
tending seedlings in the lightbox,
and wondering when we would ever be able
to plant them out in the garden.
As the first semester of my grad classes winds down,
I contemplated a little personal reading.
Things are slowly thawing. Each day the drifts dwindle.
Skies are blue
and birds are flying more easily
on graceful currents of air.
I wander the yard,
thinking of all the spring cleaning
both indoors and out .
It feels good to be outdoors without a coat,
with the sun on my face,
and the breeze tugging my long gray ponytail.
There is one fellow in the family
who is not so thrilled
that winter is slowly melting away.
Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you joy.
