WRITING DURING STAY IN PLACE ISOLATION—

SPRING DEVIATION






Spring arrived—rosy sunrise greeter,

hummingbirds stab a dangled feeder.

Bluebell buds tuned to ring and sway.

Youthful blossoms act—rainbow play.

Daffodils ready, hushed windy horns.

Squirrels rushed oak for green acorns.

Shapeshifting crescent—frozen night,

morning feeder greeting—slushy sight.

A chilly change captured feed station,

hummingbird song—ice-owe-lei-shun.

April Ryan a poet for our time.










SHARING STORIES is a weekly column for and about the 50 plus crowd living in the Puget Sound region. Send your stories and photos to ariele@comcast.net. Tell local or personal stories; discuss concerns around aging and other issues; share solutions, good luck, and reasons to celebrate; poems are fine too. Pieces may be edited or excerpted. We reserve the right to select among pieces. Photos are always a plus and a one-sentence bio is requested (where you live, maybe age or career, retired status, etc.).
