Theme for April: Receptivity

April Sixteenth 
says thorough sentences to us 
in all its moments.
It makes truths that take their time 
in telling us exceptional news
about silver spring skies 
and desks scattered with words 
and daffodils filling up our lives
and forsythias finding hopefulness 
and unfolding it for us. 
Study April Sixteenth.
Say your dearest words 
to this sweetheart day,
and it will lend you 
all the love you need. 

(writing near the Mystic River)

Two cars came by,
then a leaf left a tree,
then a pencil started
to move across paper.
It's as easy as that.
Did the sun strain
to rise this morning?
Do stars shine
because they work hard?
This old river rolls along.
It's as easy as that.
