The first warm day

before crocuses
there is softening into thaw

or not quite (almost)


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?

    The metamorphosis of seasons. Nice!

  2. Susan, you are back. I’ve missed you and often thought of you. So glad to see you so to speak. 🙂

    My Tuesday
    (response poem to your lovely offering):

    I waited to prune
    till late afternoon

    after the flowers
    and bees abated

    I hope this post means your eyes are working better and that your spring in unfolding as it should. Your poetry is.

    I’m so glad to see a poem from you.
    All the best.

    • Alice!!!!!

      Missed you too. Lovely response poem, though I’m jealous of the weather behind it. Eyes are much better, and thanks for asking.

      • Alice Keys says:

        I look forward to reading more of your poems.

        You should be jealous of this weather… up until the part that this loveliness is caused by a drought and we have one year of water left in the state of California.

        Still… I’m not complaining… yet.

  5. I like cold but not a persistent sunny one.

    I’m hoping this means your muse is unthawing, too! Nice to see you back!

  7. as with the season, so, with the poet,
    songs well from within
    they spring forth
    at the first ring of spring
    as poet, pen and keyboard warm
    to the rhythm and reason
    of the season of renewal
    to sing songs
    that unfurl like croci
    awakening, unfolding and stirring.

    welcome back, Susan! To say you were missed is to understate it.

  8. Not to be redundant, but. Yay. Lovely to see you back, Susan. You’ve been missed!
