April Is


April is my mother's birthday
(and sometimes Easter)
so either way 
it's what made my world


it's flowering rosemary
short-sleeve wearing
buckets of rain
and mosquito-biting


it's dog-happy, cat-happy
violets blooming
lawn mower broken
guess we're going to Home Depot


it's southern snow 
(white flower petals)
which fall from so many trees
and set off such a grand parade of allergies
 
 
 April is
red dirt and green leaves
too many books, not enough time
sun on skin, wind in hair

April is
beginning.
