to the someone loving me in may

the birds gathered their voices again

because the rain came slamming itself against the winter trees and pushed flowers from the nest

 

 

if not for the robins flitting about my yard i would not have looked high enough to see my name forming around the mouth of the sun again this spring

 

 

it is its last day,  this month of May,  and all of the gifts she has poured onto my head these forty years roll into a crown around my temples

 

 

the green carpet has stretched out before me another spring and my feet are bare in the grass like when i was a little girl chasing grasshoppers

 

 

if i never see another human again

i will still know someone is loving  me out there in the month of May
