April 2011

               You recognize me,
               you entice me tenderly.

                        – Hermann Hesse (“Spring”)

…and I fall within
a new skin of limbs,
tender leaves and bloom –

while fog enshrouds
the naked dance
of sycamores in the creek

and late snow clings
to green grass
on Sulphur Peak.

You are a strong woman
and I am weak within
this tapestry, this fine weave –

each thread alive, binding
cinching and relieved
to have me rest upon it.

                        for Chip Martin

  1. I’ve never been able to express my feelings adequately about the gift of an April birthday. Today is my 60th and I am sharing this find with all my friends who celebrate in April.
