For spring

It's here -- 


People having lunch on the Common


Kitties in the window




This is now.  Now is,

all there is.  Don't wait for Then;

strike the spark, light the fire.


Sit at the Beloved's table,

feast with gusto, drink your fill


then dance

the way branches

of jasmine and cypress

dance in a spring wind.


The green earth

is your cloth;

tailor your robe

with dignity and grace.
