kinder finds the perfect place right in the middle of the great wide open.

quite as effective a tranquilizing agent

as a sunny spring day.”

mixed feelings

when walking inside from another round of snow

and being greeted by a 4th of july display

at least i have my sandals on 

with my long down coat

and i am ready for anything.

“there are certain odd times and occasions

in this strange mixed affair we call life

when a man takes his whole universe for a vast practical joke.”

today.

Standard

on the spring equinox

Today

if ever there were a spring day so perfect,
so uplifted by a warm intermittent breeze

that it made you want to throw
open all the windows in the house

and unlatch the door to the canary’s cage,
indeed, rip the little door from its jamb,

a day when the cool brick paths
and the garden bursting with peonies

seemed so etched in sunlight
that you felt like taking

a hammer to the glass paperweight
on the living room end table,

releasing the inhabitants
from their snow-covered cottage

so they could walk out,
holding hands and squinting

into this larger dome of blue and white,
well, today is just that kind of day.
