Gratitude

from Stanley Kunitz...  "...That work is not an expression of the desire for praise or recognition, or prizes, but the deepest manifestation of your gratitude for the gift of life."

The Buckeyes have their new green umbrellas out
they leapt past unfurling, that being too slow
I imagine in plant-talk, the Buckeye shouts
Spring Is Coming, Yes Yes Yes!
and I drive by on my way somewhere
important, on time, delivering or picking up
going to work or home again
I see you!  Your green is not wasted on me
soon I will walk right down this road 
take a picture, and post it on my blog.

For now we will enjoy the flowering quince.
