Thank You, April



April, I am starved for light,

bring a little, please,
to the window

where I can see summer
lolling about the hills afar off.

Ah, yes, I see her now,
shoeless in leaves of grass,
picking blackberries,
Sonnet 18 nearing couplet.

April, you’re a long way from summer,
but at least I can see her from here.

Tiki Me Pink

If you don’t mind,
I’m kind

of tired
of all this
drizzle drivel.

If you please,
tease

me with your
lazy blue wing.

I need to sing
sun lullabies,

cat curled
round my feet
in the heat,

a purr, a giggle,
in my sleep.
