April is National Poetry Month. So have a poem!



Yesterday the winds cut without pause

slicing through light coats and jabbing at ears and noses

people huddled, hands in pockets

The day before shone warmly–searing blue cloudless sky

parched of shade

all the flowers bright

in red yellow pink white

sweetly wafting lures to bees

Today is in between, the wind tossing the leaves high

lacking teeth or claws

sky a patchwork of sun and shade-casting vapor puffs

distant sounds of music and laughter

and a glass of sweet tart lemonade

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
