April 18

Hope springs eternal.

Spring is not eternal hope.

Snow covered crocus.


April 12

On the road to home,

The snow clings tenaciously

to the hills. Drive slow.

April 10

Rochester – last day

Traveling home to soon

Missing great friends now.


April 9

Swords flashed in the sun,

Years of training on display ,


Today two of my friends became First degree black belts (Sho Dan) in Aiki Kenjitsu.

April 2

Holidays over,
Fool and Rabbit are no more.
Time to move forward.

Winter teases us,
Frost tendrils still at the door.
Spring – only bird songs.
