Rainbow-colored eggs
Nestled in a flowerbed
Speak of life renewed.


Groundhog Day

Punxsatawney Phil
Predicts early spring this year…
It can’t come too soon!

Martin Luther King Day

One man with a dream
Awakened the whole nation
Never let it die.

New Year

Two, zero, one, one:
Penciled to practice the date
Before writing checks.


Fragrant fingernails
Peeling the Christmas orange
From the stocking toe.

Gives way to a final task:
Christmas Eve wrapping!


Eclipse-reddened moon
The solstice’s bloodshot eye
Closes the old year.
