at any time of day

when it fills the air with scent
And I stand there for a moment
Breathing in with good intent

A poem for Maytime
sitting out in the sun
The warmer air tells us
Springtime’s begun
There are dandelions
buttercups, daisies too
growing there in the grass
with the bells of blue

“GOD’S MIDWIFE” ~Deborah Avila

by I HAVE A VOICE

Joseph ~the carpenter~

balanced the awe-eyed

Daughter of Israel

as one more steady hoof moved forward~

Once more “no room” shook in the man’s heart,

The carpenter ~God’s midwife~

begged heavenward~
