Easter Weekend

Happy Easter!  This time of year I feel so blessed!  I'm currently listening to the soulful twangs of Adele while cleaning out my closet.  Out with the cold winter clothes and putting my shortsleeved shirts, capris, skirts, and sandals in.  I wrote a poem earlier that had been percolating in my mind for a while. 

It must have been the
Way the sun shone golden
Through sparse early spring
Tree leaves
Or how the letters were arranged on the page
Or the intricate, delicate
Weave of words,
Sprouting vines on the arbor,
Birdsong,
Tinkling of wind chimes,
Life,
Or this time of year
Filled with endless possibilities
Which makes me
Nostalagic for you.
