Easter Glow

IMG_4158 (1)Easter glows at crosswalks and CVS

while peeking through cellophaned baskets I see

foil covered chocolates

that melted too soon in the almost summer sun.

on hot pavement.

Helicopter leaves-pinwheel trees

with blossoms of yellow paper confetti.

Dandelion nettles floating on warm breeze.

On the park bench I sat with tights that never fit

quite right around chubby thighs

-legs sticking out like pins in a cushion.

With folds of scratchy yellow lace about as I sweat

kicking the bare dirt and hyacinths

with the tips of my scratched white Buster Browns.

Crescent smile

yellow purse suspended

Jeweled sun-tears as I wait

  1. oh, your vivid imagery is a masterful craftsman – i didn’t make note of the photo until after i’d read the poem, but it both echoes the picture and also makes it more vivid, if that makes sense. lovely job.
