Fairfax, VA, USA. Easter Sunday for Western Christianity. Christos Anesti (as they say in the East). Me? I'm just a poor girl who writes poetry and likes rock and roll. I got nuthin' against no gods and they got nuthin' on me. Swing out sweet chariot, but I'm not near ready to leave yet. I have volumes yet of poetry to write before the muse stops yelling at me. Have an egg or better yet, bite the ears off a chocolate bunny rabbit.

Orion has assumed its Easter position
Low against the sky on the southern horizon,
Sheep gather, Lambs are born,
Border Collies rejoice in exaltation;

The sun rises within the hour,
People stir behind closed doors,
But for now the Night is Silent,
Hanging quietly on to Morning.

Fairfax, VA, USA. Palm Sunday now; Easter next Sunday. Remnants of my childhood when all was true. What have I done to you that makes you testify against me?

Cherry trees bursting along airport access,
Snow white blossoms not yet tourist pink,
Reaching up just below the inbound rail,
A Spring declaration that Winter has passed.

Fairfax, VA, USA. Spring arrived with the delayed tree pollen, harmonizing with grasses and flowers. We have a new old car. Hope outlasted the winter darkness of winter to greet a new world. Baseball starts Life anew!

The gray dullness early morning,
Sunshine breaking through mid-afternoon,
The air is chilly, spring suspended,
The Gods have a sense of humor after all.
