Cloud Muted Sunlight

Spring yard 2014Breeze hindered warmth

Finds me protected

Twixt porch railing

and sun sopped wall.

Lawn cluttered of straggling leaves

Gives way to luxuriant green.

The neighbor’s

Unfettered by shade.

Daffodil and tulip leaves

Guide yet to be blooms

Through last fall’s chaff.

Peonies poke small red noses up.

Rhododendron and azalea

Fatten with expectation.

Now the threat of frosty nights recedes.

Exuberant chipmunk

Bounces hole to tree

Tailed exclamation to

This long awaited resurrection.
