A flurry of spring cleaning today, as the future opens, or the past rematerializes. Tomorrow grand and wonderful music will be played in my house by more than we two who are always in residence. I can scarcely contain my joyous anticipation.

Like a bird on a wire
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way
to be free

week 656 ~ warm beach days beckon me

warm beach days beckon me
as summer sun leaks through
ocean breezes blow free
warm beach days beckon me
and I can almost see
the world opening new
warm beach days beckon me
as summer sun leaks through

The endless variety of spring flowers dazzles as we move out of hibernation, leaving behind our New England winter in quarantine. Some days are warm and some far cooler, but the colors of nature seem even more brilliant as they herald our emergence from the tragedies of the past year, the past few years.

Bleeding hearts– a memory from my early childhood home. I would marvel at the detail and regularity of the blossoms, like Japanese lanterns hung for a celebration. Somehow I have never planted any at any of my grown-up homes. But always they bring a smile of remembrance.
