"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2017 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw or get my first book and see how the work evolves with new books rolling out next year.

It's the nothing

It's the nothing time
the time between
it's neither summer,
winter, or spring

The nothing time
when the sky isn't blue
the sun isn't yellow
no green grass
covered in dew

It's the end of
the long gray, gray, gray
Lent where some gave up
chocolate, meat, or mince pie

But I, I gave up
Lent for Lent,
and my oh my how the
time rushed right by

The tulips are poking out
an orange haze covers gray
Spring is here
almost to the day

and I say hooray,
I say hooray!
