in bright winter sun
days grow longer


Poem from my February archives:

Spring will return
here and there
and then I’ll say,
“When did this happen?”
Today, though, I rest
in longer light
on evergreens
in a tiny bit of wind

O pen hearts and
O pen minds to
K now new stories and
S ongs

all I deleted
to say what I mean
