Spring Things

A beautiful evening in the city:

flowers other than pansies

before Mother’s Day, fragrance

of two dozen roses just shined—


and I need some ideas if we are able

to go outside, like pick up another

smaller grill, talk to the people

you love, host a front-yard picnic


The NaPoWriMo prompt for Day 17 was to write a social-media poem. The above is based on Facebook status updates and is just about the right speed for a Saturday.

    1. Thanks. It’s nice to have a low-pressure prompt for uninspired days. or maybe the moral is, Poetry is all around–go find it!


I'd be so happy to hear from you.
