The winter has been full of work, writing limited to policies and memos. Too many deadlines to allow myself time to write for pleasure.
The deadlines continue, but on this lovely Spring morning I took a break, read some blogs, and discovered April is poetry month.
It brought to mind a poem I love. It reminds me of myself and Spring. Perhaps I will find time to share others this month as a much needed Spring break from policy writing.
She Never Finished Anything by Lenore Langs
was distracted from
by the flash of a finch’s wing
decided to follow a regime
of monday cleaning
but took her coffee to the backyard for
on the first monday
and stayed all morning
watching the light change
on the leaves of the lilac
