small stones – March 3, 2016

O Spring, why so shy?
you poked your head out
so briefly, briefly
then hid once more

For two days, I’ve shivered
from your shied flight
Winter still whips
outside my door


small stones – March 1, 2016


as warmth returns
and Spring awakens
I am reminded:
check your seeds

Will I be planting
seeds of compassion
love and kindness
or seeds of hate
deceit and ignorance?

which garden
do I wish to grow?
what nourishment
do I hope to reap?
