Monthly poem - April 2018

APRIL

Tiptoeing in on violet shoes
you shake down your curls
in the purling rain
under the budding bare trees
here we are again.
Month of marriage and death
daffodils announce
the light orchestra of Spring
in one breath
and the ghost of a chance
for a romantic fling
for this is the time
when all the birds of the world
open their throats and sing.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
