Fairfax, VA, USA. Palm Sunday now; Easter next Sunday. Remnants of my childhood when all was true. What have I done to you that makes you testify against me?

Cherry trees bursting along airport access,
Snow white blossoms not yet tourist pink,
Reaching up just below the inbound rail,
A Spring declaration that Winter has passed.

Fairfax, VA, USA. Spring arrived with the delayed tree pollen, harmonizing with grasses and flowers. We have a new old car. Hope outlasted the winter darkness of winter to greet a new world. Baseball starts Life anew!

The gray dullness early morning,
Sunshine breaking through mid-afternoon,
The air is chilly, spring suspended,
The Gods have a sense of humor after all.

Fairfax, VA, USA. Same President, same Congress, same problems and half-thought out solutions. But baseball starts March 31 and there is the scent of hope in the air, even if the weather can't decide if it should snow or be shirtsleeve sunshine.

Mammals we,
My dog and I,
Treasure company,
Tactile interaction,
Watching each other's backs
When we are needed,
Carrying out our conversations
In Pantomime and English,
Causing me to admit
She knows more human
Than I know dog.
