My Easter Poem

Easter Season

Surprise, delight, expanding, round

Light, dynamic, tender, warm,

Floating music, tingling, smiles,

Aha! That’s it! Climactic, real,

A hunger, urgent impulse, peace,

Choked-up, tears and silence breathing,

An embrace!

I noticed that one of the pope’s intentions for April is “That people may learn to respect creation and care for it as a gift of God.” What a coincidence that we both chose the same theme for the month! He may have a little more sway than I, but in my own little way I do what I can. It’s all I can do.

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
