Why this?

The occasional poem of my own and a generous helping of work by others that I find inspiring. Site is named for a beloved book by one of my favorite writers, Italo Calvino, whose fanciful work lights--and delights--my soul.

Spring

Nine months pregnant

Boughs sleeved in pink puffs,
hyacinth nibs starfish curling,
yellow poms on everything.
And the tulips. Such abandon
in the face of a little sun.
How they loose their petals
to the point of near loss—
all but overcome before closing,
opening again.
