Mowing the lawn -
spring's first daisy peeking
through the grass.

    middle of the road
    a stray kitten
    meowing helplessly

    spring drizzle--
    my lawn with fat worms
    and robins

    one more spring morning
    the sun's first golden rays ...
    easing pass my window

    crisp spring morning
    purple crocus peeks through
    melting snow

    San Francisco daily forcast -
    "morning fog, gone by noon
    ... returns early evening"

    spring rain
    the earthworms drying
    on the garage floor

    miami downpour
    clearing smog --
    pristine skies
    from long ago

    ------

    to see miami's skies after it's tropical storms, the sun reappearing; such blemish-free beauty, i almost missed. sadly, many never look up ...

    sun shower
    daisies brighten the gravel parking lot

    those orange groves!
    warm hands
    cold darkness
    snifter of grand marnier, shared
