occasional poem for the 24th day of spring

Today is someone’s birthday
but not in my house.

The rising sap
the snap of light
against the window

negate the chill

say today
someone is celebrating

and should
just for the sake
of the day


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
