The clock and the calendar move
forward incrementally, naturally
(as it should be) from a darker
winter we can’t leave behind to
something resembling spring.
In-between our seasons we take
whatever we can, where we are.
We have little choice.
A less-than-enthusiastic forecast
glares at me from a mobile device,
with greater chance of soakers
more than once or twice in the
week ahead as atmospheric rivers
come down to earth (a convenient
excuse for all it’s worth).
April showers still to come, as it

Some days I think things I just can’t say.
It’s not that I am ashamed or embarrassed

Now It is Time
The past and the present
are light years apart.
You’ve stumbled, and stalled,
and have made several starts.
You wish and you’ve worried
but have always been clear,
there’s far more going on
than what you see here.
Distractions, sheer delusions,
inner-conflict and insight,
a conscious decision not to just
