An Easter of Doubt

Updated on April 26, 2017
Second Easter
Second Easter | Source

A second Easter filled

Saturday together

the rush to spring was stilled

with each beetle gather

an occasional voice

joy as light as feather

as redemptive as choice

consequential blossom

a moment to rejoice

could not afford such sums

a bluebird vacancy

to hand clean all the crumbs

hope this hides truancy

to smell vanilla bark

a simple currency

here is where my words lack

this powerful movement

this hunt out by the shack

"It's too early," I meant,

"to count where our times went."

      Thank you Audrey, Gypsy, and manatita44. This was a Terza Rima. This form may take some getting used to. So nice to hear from you all. Jamie

      Your poem reminded me of all of the Easters of yesteryear and you know those are memories that somehow still elude me. My childhood Easters. Wish there had been videos at that time.
