snowbank

becoming

compost

 

 

                  [March 31, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

empty coffee pot

gotta go

gotta go


                  [March 30, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

one small patch

of muddied snow —

the creek keeps rising


                  [March 29, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

her chocolate breath

mingles with mine —

easter sunset

 

 

 

 

 






hills behind

snow mist —

tailgater in the mirror

 

 

 

 

 

our chilly hug —

ice encircles

the island

 


[March 28, 2005]

 

 




 







more gray heads

at the easter meal —

withered cattails in the yard

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

easter monday:

three baskets

late but full

 

        [March 27, 2005] 

 

 


 






giant chocolate bunny!

solid

or hollow?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

when we were kids

it smelled bad —

decorating easter eggs

 

 

 

 

                                              [March 26, 2005] 

 

 








can’t hear

the compliments

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good Friday

the apostate

sees crosses everywhere

                                              [March 25, 2005]

 


 


 


 


 


 


 


floes jam


below the trestle —


a flood of warnings


 


 


                  [March 24, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the duckling

skirts the ice floe —

our river rendezvous

 

 

 

         




mom’s voice long distance    

first thought,

who died?

 

[March 23, 2005]





 

 

 



big thaw overnight –

reflections

on the river

                                   [March 22, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

last snowbank —

the soccer ball

re-emerging

                                        [March 21, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

spring arrives —
new snow brightens

old snowbanks

 

        [March 20, 2005]

 

 

 

frozen river–

snow hides

the elm’s reflection

 

             from Manichi Daily News

                  March 5, 2005 (No. 669)

 

 

 

 

I hesitate —

the plumber’s

offered hand


 

                          

 

 







 

new leaves

soon!

savoring the winter view

 

 

 

 

 

 

St. Patrick’s Day —

drawing the

designated-driver straw

 

 

[March 18, 2005]

 

 

 






 

 

Saints Patrick

and Christopher  —

sharing a brew and a ride

 

                         [March 17, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 







 
March sunrise —

back pain

interrupts

                              [March 16, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
first warm day

her pale

gloveless hands                

                       [March 15, 2005]

 

 

 

 














the lawyer

represents himself —

the widow’s raised fist

 

                              March 15, 2005

                              Versaci v. Ritchie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

where the man

fell in yesterday —

more thin ice


 

                              [March 14, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

they point out

the differences —

meeting twins



[March 13, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

mid-March thaw —

et tu,

(snow) buddha?

 

 

 

 

          

 





St. Paddy’s parade —

at the curb

green and yellow snow

                                                       [March 12, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

new eyeglasses —

a duck,

or a boot, on the ice 

                              [March 11, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

my childhood barber shop–

only the mirror

is different 

                              [March 10, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





filling the pan

on the radiator —

icicles drip                 

                   [March 9, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

just as slippery

in March —                 

icy roads                 

                         [March 8, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 


March snow

wanting more

not wanting more                 

                   [March 7, 2005]

 

 

 

 





 

 


men’s room sink —

avoiding

the mirror 

 

 

 

 

 

“snowflakeSN”

 

 

March —

those big fat

snowflakes

                                [March 6, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 




 


the dog

gets all her kisses —

chilled by a wagging tail 

                                [March 5, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 













saffron flags  

above and below the bridge —

duck feet paddle by

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the runner’s vest

blends in  —

through The Gates of central park

 

 

 

               [March 4, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

setting a timer

to remember

to set the timer

 

 

 

 

 

 





first sunny day

in March —

her first smile this month

                           [March 3, 2005]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

charming the pretty

bookstore clerk — one more

skill learned too late

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





winter wind —

i’m tired,

why aren’t you?

                           [March 3, 2005]

 

 

 


path to the river —

“fresh scent” wafts

from the dryer vent





 

 

 

 

 

 

he calls two inches

eight —

embarrassed weather man

 

                               [March 1, 2005]
