little bumps on twigs
 tiny blossoms here and there
 now the earth is spilling over with bloom

such hard, huge things going on the world
 much to pay attention to in our own little sphere, also
just trying to take it all in
wishing there were more hours in the day
to just acknowledge…absorb…work it out…
 or just feel a prayer…until words return
P.S. So grateful for the birthday wishes…I read each one with sweet pleasure.
