March 20

 

Spring Equinox

 

Today, we woke up

happy.  We fed the horse,

the sheep, we spread out a blanket

on the living room floor

and had a breakfast picnic,

giggling.  The sun warmed us,

we opened the windows, we remembered

this life’s perfection.

The day went on, and we forgot.

We were cranky, tired, our own

human selves.  We kept

the morning in our hearts, we tried

to remember again.
