Happy Easter Neighbours!

Easter Egg Thoughts '09

Eggs in a nest-basket
from a bunny seems
funnily strange,
for the range of

Ostara in a Pagan Spring,
the stirring of life
behind the coming light.

Bunny-funny eggs,
ovoid canvas for kids
and those patient enough
with minutiae for its own sake.

The delight of bright Fabergé
sparks Revolution,
dark and mechanical.

My eyes pull to the window;
bald eagle sentry in crooked fir,
just looking for a bunny,
concerned only with her
eggs in a nest-basket.

Great pic and poem! I love the red egg on the end. Of course, I love ANYTHING red.

I am humbled by your talent,
and your liberal use
of a colorful pallet.
