I must have had a mental
pause in March…found a slew
not posted so here goes my
spring cleaning getting cobwebs
out of my mind
===========================
.
.
CAPTIVATE
.
grandma found her man
a bit shy, he stayed a distance
he swooped ~ hanky drop
.
Citrus 
.
darkest winter days
sunshine surrounds kitchen
icicles shimmering

.
carbonation
.
spring time strikes the nose
Plop plop fizz fizz
that old pollen feeling

.
cloche
.
teepee hats for plants
protective ring around sprouts
sun ~ water do the work
.
spring cleaning
.
time to down size
forty-three years fills the house
autumn of my years
.
constellation
.
patient worried
constellation of tests
“virus” “call in morning”

.
current
.
tea on lawn by Pond *
tea and scones ~ popovers
today’s step back in time

.
back note:
*Jordan Pond House,
Acadia National Park.
Remembering past in
current traditions
====================
.
crapshoot
.
brides want lasting love
pro con lists go on and on
forever love ~ crap shoot
.
cockleshell
.
warming hearts cockles
heart thumping beats faster
warm fuzzy feeling

.
carp (verb)
.
high maintenance spouse
caterwauls, bellyaches, whines
prima donna
.
rude neighbor lady
kids cut across lawn to school
deaf ears to anger

.
“CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER”
.
tea party magic
secluded wonderland
secret garden found

.
hidden entrance
stream and lady slippers greet
bench with shaded roof

.
“high tea”…three tiers
finger sandwiches ~ tasty cakes
deer watch from pond
.
cozy
.
bright cheery skies
cat naps ~ sunny window warms
windchill minus five
