Procrastination
is like a thing with feathers –
it makes you flighty.

A birthday shared by
Clara and Shakespeare. My girl’s
in good company.

Took before-rain walk.
Saw deer bounding toward the creek
and the old willows.

I love the sound of
the mourning dove coo. I lie
in bed and listen.

It’s Easter morning
and the end of Lent. Sweets are
whispering, “Eat me.”

Making lasagna
at 8:00 a.m. just seems wrong.
The smell permeates.

I watch groundhogs graze
and listen to merlins call.
This morning’s wildlife.

It’s a reading day.
Trying to keep calm about
the essay that’s due.

Snowy morning walk.
Feeling virtuous because
I got up today.

Happy Birthday, Jack –
you’d have been twenty today.
I’m so very sad.
