Connections: February 29

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAChivelings!

Herbal babies, first to birth

wiggling roots in warming earth

slenderly poking this way and that

through winter swaddle, last year’s hat.

Newly voiced in green polyphony:

Canticum novum! Here I be!

Connections: February 25

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAA heavy hand of winter

weighs on us today

a hoary wind lamenting

would blow us all away.

But here I sit in fuzzy robe

warm if not exotic

contemplating verb and noun

how utterly Quixotic.

Is it all inconsequential

or is it something more?

Should I care, or should I shrug?

The wind shrills “You’re a bore!”

Yet here’s my motley garden

leftover Valentine reds

my glorious amaryllis

with quadruple flaming heads.

Their warmth declares a battle

‘gainst dark and cold without.

I’m stuck between the forces

of will and writer’s doubt.
