Plum Blossom

Again the white foam of plum

The clambering spray of clematis along the back fence

Seedlings of sweet pea, forgetmenot

and columbine, opening its tiny leafy fans.

The varied thrush brightens day by day and practices its courting song

The year exhales in fragrant bloom and green beginnings

Today my daughter’s birthday, she pregnant, round as a plum herself

Another spring baby soon to come

What wonderful work lies ahead!
