National Poetry Month: leaf haiku

april 4 018

on the porch swing
watching kids on scooters;
silent green unfurls

...-Andromeda Jazmon

On these long, warm spring evenings we finish dinner and go outside for another half hour of playtime. The kids have pulled out scooters and bikes and baseballs, and have the run of the front lawns. I'm in my porch swing, taking it all in. These precious few days when the world is flowing with sap and nothing is chewed or broken... I want to slow down and float here a while.
