The FAB&PP Poem of the Month for May 2022

spontaneous poetry is not always the best

watching the rabbits
(they're watching 
the squirrels) 
the robin does a zig 
zag hop through
the yard keeping his
eye on
me all the while

the white lilacs begin
to bloom and
the wisteria climbs the
porch post

i should trim
my nails and pick up
my guitar

or lay back and tap
my phone goodbye

listen to the flag
fluttering in the wind
and the trees swaying 
(strangely silent)

instead i hunch
over this 
nothing waiting for
nothing scrunching
up the winter and
neatly stacking today's

(the cardinals arrived
too late to supervise)
