Anticipating Spring in Michigan

the breeze is painted
with a remembered canopy
of honeysuckle and lilac -
a sistene chapel invisible to the eye
known only by its delicate breath
whispering its name

You must have gotten the same breeze in Michigan yesterday that we got in the St. Louis area. So sweet. So sweet. My mother could not wipe the smile off her face as she puttered in the yard.
