Light Coats

Spring rain - sounds like a name
For a scent - maybe it is one
Come Spring - the rain smells
Like no other - the daffodils tell me
In all their light coats
That Spring is a lovely lemon yellow
Sunny & golden in voice
They even remind me of honey.

The garden is wet from yesterday's rains
Before Spring has dreamed
Of bringing it to life
Here is a palette of inspiration.

Nothing Better

There is nothing better than the kiss
It is in my head & in my bed
And thinking of our slow bodies
Vaguely sensing voices
Yet it's quiet - with only dreaming
To look back on & lie back on.

I shall place a lingering kiss
And dream of you
Paris shall be the place
Take special care
This evening -
Between how & when
Spring comes & goes
