Spring runoff cascades its way into consciousness.
Stems push buds skyward promising a summer of kaleidoscopic splendor.
Where did winter go?
Cold breath against the window.
Shivering bodies wiggling out of polyester shells.
Happenings recalled from a mind yawning out of hibernation.
Gerald A. McBreen found poetry after he retired from the US Postal Service. He discovered he had a flair for romance. He has been publishing for ten years with True Romance and their related magazines. He is the coordinator for Striped Water Poets. They sponsor an “open mic” every first Wednesday of the month. They also post 'Poems on Posters' around the area. In 2009 Pacific, Washington celebrated its 100th anniversary, and he was appointed Poet Laureate. (2009 - 2013)
