Spring flowers and poetry

The Moment
by Marie Howe

Oh, the coming-out-of-nowhere moment

when,   nothing


no what-have-I-to-do-today-list

maybe   half a moment

the rush of traffic stops.

The whir of I should be, I should be, I should be

slows to silence,

the white cotton curtains hanging still.

Happy spring and World Poetry Day!
