Virginia March

March in Virginia has a cool warmth to the air.

I remember a morning like this,

walking to the bus stop,

wearing a red coat.


Maybe I noticed the birds,

the trees with bare limbs

and the few flowers

that had begun to show in the yards.

Perhaps not.


But today I did

and blended it

with that memory

of long ago.


A good day beginning.
