may day









cardinals bicker in the rain-drenched corners of this morning
startled by the malingering of winter
it is a perfect day to sit,
gathering the seasons to ones soul
like misbehaving marbles
smooth against my sternum
transparent in my hands
wind gusts in, bringing presence
waking the heartsease . . .
as the birds quiet to preform some ancient rite to
spring
and
sun

  2. a beautiful May Day poem Susie...I remember as a child wrapping the flower decorated ribbons around the May-Day pole in the school gym. How I wish we could return to those simple days...those simple pleasures. :)
