Connections: April 26

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAMy neighbors’ yards bejewelled

by April cloisonne

— tulips’ dazzling hues

bowing in the May —

shine more brightly

than does mine

with shyly clever

columbine.

In canny metamorphosis

it changes jester hat

for coronet of wings —

a tulip can’t do that!

As spring gives way to summer

and tulips sag to brown

my columbine laughs last

in green and ruffly mound.

Tuck this in your docket

a poem for your pocket

a sonnet for your vest

or line of anapest

today in bits of paper

in literary caper

we raise a silent cry

against the plain and dry

and summon muses hence

with their accoutrements

metaphor and simile

rhythm light and nimble-y

poetry’s declaration

of determined preservation.

Happy Poem-In-Your-Pocket Day, dear reader!
