'Good Morning'
sounded like 'Surprise' today
when last night's rain
covered this morning's lawn
in white

what about the tulips' green shoots
just emerged into
April's warmth -
do they wish they'd stayed
for another week?

or the song birds,
returned from winter's travels -
did they huddle together,
sharing what little body warmth
they could spare?

as for me, even
is still a good morning.
If not today, then soon
spring is here to stay,
and, soon
we won't be able to escape
the surprise of
new life.
