after 3 years
my little stick
given time and space
has grown into
a baby peony tree
well worth the wait
for its very first bloom.
“in early june, the world of leaf and blade and flowers explodes, and every sunset is different.”
and yet again
we find ourselves caught up
in the dance
of ‘daylight savings time’
readjust once more
are we early
are we late
are we on time
whose time are we on
no one is quite sure.
“the trouble is, you think you have time.”

excited to see a new film
(one of my favorite things to do)
i arrived precisely
at the designated time and place
(with time to meet up, buy tickets, grab a ‘movie-buttered’ popcorn, chatter a bit, and find our seats)
only to discover
that i had organized it so that
we were precisely
24 hours late for the show.
p.s. i really do make every effort to be on time for things
but this has also happened
with a holiday party i was really excited to attend
a few years back
is this a pattern? see below –
a day late and a trifle short.
“nothing, of course, begins at the time you think it did.”
“we must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact
that each moment is a miracle and mystery.”
on daylight savings time day once again – fall back

the northern hemisphere summer solstice will occur at 5:14 a.m. et on june 21, 2022
the hour is upon us
“an inch of time on the sundial is worth more than a foot of jade.”
and once again
the meaningless disruption
of daylight savings time
many of us
unmoved by it.

and with the return of daylight savings time,
this quote is more relevant to me than ever.
i literally just want to know what is the right time?
long past the calendar date
to celebrate a dear friend’s milestone birthday
as if no time has passed.
“our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.”
not sure if it will be night or day when i wake up today
on daylight savings time change day.
on yet another daylight savings time adjustment day
still the same number of hours in a day
no matter what you call them
each one equally valuable
