- E. E. Cummings -
yes is a pleasant country:
let's open the year
both is the very weather
when violets appear
love is a deeper season
my sweet one
(and april's where we're)

This post first appeared on my previous website, memory & desire (memoryanddesire.net).
To each who sent a message, thought a kind or concerned thought in my direction, or looked here just to see if anything would ever change;
To each who kept me on a favorites list despite nothing new to show for it in a really long time;
To you, reading this now;
More to come, some much overdue. I hope you will join me for another season, as long as it lasts and as far as it takes us into poetry, scent, memory, and imagination.
