Let's be kind to earth

Trees and herbs to plant

Compost and repost

Maybe a quick Tree pose

Pause and breath for yourself

Be kind to yourself

Be kind to your neighbour

Look out and watch out

Defend the underdogs and misfits

If there is a rebirth

I will start from birth

All of us, all over the earth

April 26th – Birth / Rebirth

Hey, a Haiku would keep me caught up

But do I want to ease my task?

Thirty days of poetry

Doesn’t seem too much to ask!

I kept up with the content

As we headed forth out of the gate

A day goes by, and then a week

And now I am writing eight!

No, I guess it wasn’t as bad a that

Nothing a focused evening wouldn’t fix

A drive to a quiet spot to think

And I am ready to post six!

So focused on my words, I am

And besought with pending mirth

I realize too late into it…

The subject was about rebirth!

I guess I can take license

With her first breath,

She fills two unscathed lungs

Then releases her displeasure in

A flat and our hearts sing.

Her dewy, downy skin glows

In the warmth of our awed


And the music of her promise

Drowns out the noise of a

Tone deaf world,

Allowing us to hear, again,

The whispers of hope.




Spring is upon us

Make no fuss

Days are brighter;

Moods are lighter.

Chicks, ducks, and geese are hatching

No more z’s, bears are catching

Hunting, fishing, and scavenging lessons for young;

Venturing out into the sun.

Flowers are blooming

Bees, mosquitoes, and ants are zooming

Trees are budding;

Yards are flooding.

Butterflies break free

From sea to sea,

Life is renewed;

The circle of life continues.
