We were serenaded by a mockingbird at lunch,
and another mockingbird sang the sun down.
And yes, this is exactly the kind of day it was today,
full of sunshine and a blue blue sky,
my thirsty skin guzzling the vitamin D,
mid 70s on the thermometer making it delicious
downright pleasant to sit away from the shade,
following the sun like a cat.
Rain tomorrow they say,
but today there was none
today makes it all okay.
Pear trees are popping out white all over town
it is just spring, y'all,
no waiting anymore,
even though it's not yet official
another 10 degrees would be perfection.
Maggie the cat has been outside all day
is outside still;
Lily the cat also,
though not all day.
I opened the back door at work
to let her spend a few moments basking,
and found myself keeping her company for a bit,
leaning a chair against a wall
just sitting with no thoughts,
not even those of spring.
