Today

If ever there were a spring day so perfect,
so uplifted by a warm intermittent breeze

that in made you want to throw
open all the windows in the house

and unlatch the door to the canary’s cage,
indeed, rip the little door from the jamb,

a day when the cool brick paths
and the garden sprouting tulips

seemed so etched in sunlight
that you felt like taking

a hammer to the glass paperweight
on the living room end table,

releasing the inhabitants
from their snow-covered cottage

so they could walk out,
holding hands and squinting

into this larger dome of blue and white,
well, today is just that kind of day.

— Billy Collins

It is essential to naturalist doctrine that literature,
to be good, must, finally,

be the author’s experience worked out literally.

Desert Marigold — Computer Art by kenne

Whether writing a poem,

taking a photograph, or

working in social media,

I believe creativity allows

me to do it my way —

stimulating light,

stimulating color to

express my interbeing

and relationship with nature.
