We had some rare rain this week, and the trees have finally exploded their green. I love how Spring inches along here. The trees stage their budding so that different species take center stage all on their own. What's your favorite thing about Spring?
<--- green tree outside my house. Hey, don't take the green for granted!
Keeping it short this month. Perhaps you're grateful I deleted paragraphs of ranting about other things?
More about Reckless Joy next time.
Meanwhile, one of my haiku made it into our local paper's weekend arts magazine, Pasatiempo. Thank you, Santa Fe New Mexican! So much fun!
Here are two haiku I wrote that didn't make the cut:
rabbits on the run cats prowl while dogs bark soft breeze cools warm day
fat finches grazing Cooper Hawk's shadow shields sun feathers float through air
Below is the haiku that made the paper. I love that they used a robin's egg to offset the page.
Stay kind and curious about the world, my friends! Thank you for reading.—JD
My stories often explore loss, grief, interconnectedness, and how—or if—we come back together after we've been driven apart. I'm deeply interested in life in all its forms (human, animal, feathered, not); concerned about our humanity and our survival both practically and spiritually.—JD Eames
