NO POEMS LATELY

Five-week vicious respiratory flu of 2015;
A friend in dire health crisis;
End of another school quarter:

Conspiracy, or at least experiences, 
Consuming my energy and time,
Precluding creativity and, even, much fun.

Gratifying Easter/påsk: beautiful services;
Positive contact and fun, relaxed meal;
Feeling rejuvenated and back to myself.

As always, Spring has sprung again;
Sun and clouds in equal measure;
Flowers and trees returning to full bloom.

At last, my body energy follows the seasons,
As, once, we all organically participated.
Breathing more easily, focusing more intentionally.

Challenges and joys ahead, life unfolding.
Prayers for friends' aging and passing.
Ebbing and flowing, waxing and waning.
