Guess Who?

Wet snow fell in April.
We brushed it from the truck windows
and slushed our way downtown
talking and laughing, you slowed
for the red light and a wide, white
blindfold of snow slid off the roof and
over the windshield,
as though winter had snuck up behind us,
clasped her cold white hands
in front of our eyes, and
exclaimed “guess who!”
Oh, honey, we know ‘who’,
we were just trying to ignore you.

April Morning

I

Morning light on snow
My sense of humour fails me
Is it Spring or not?

II
I imagine geese
who just honked in from parts south
shaking their slim heads

III
And the red robin,
perhaps somewhere turning blue.
April morning sigh.
