Spring Arrives & Announcement

March WindMarch Wind

Spring Arrives

Clumps of crocus and daffodils,

wet with soft, spring rain,

rise above replenished soil.

Maples’ red buds shake

on ends of thin branches

that vibrate in steady breeze.

Winter’s quiet days rapidly end

with sudden burst of peepers’ song

from swamp which shimmers

in slowly dimming day.

Lainie Senechal

Lainie will participate in a reading of poems written for art in the Blue Wave Fine Art Gallery, Amesbury, MA.  The reception and reading is April 2, 6:30-8:30PM.

March Wind & Annoucement

March WindMarch Wind Sails Over Ice of Frozen Lake
March Wind
Dried, pale leaves of beech,

like scraps of worn fabric,

torn from branches in streams

of strong March wind,

jet through open space

into empty vernal air.

Meltwater on frozen lake

forms pools that mirror

shimmer of setting sun,

as seasons flip from frigid winter

into warm, sweet spring.

Birds at dawn announce this

transition with renewed trills.

Lainie Senechal

Lainie will participate in an exhibit March Wind, with new paintings and poetry, at Kaji Aso Studio from March 12 – April 7th.  The opening is March 12 from 7PM-9PM.  Poetry reading begins at 8PM.
