Rejoice!

Finland, 1968, photo by George F. Mobley 

 “Change: it’s inside job.”
Maria De Simone,
astrologer
We’ve started in groups
tribes couples
or single

Balloons – 5 or 6
for parade
celebrate

Swords pointed up
to delay the departure
we mingle

White/green grass/birch
warm coats
white hats.

The April in Finland?
The Earth Day?
The Easter?

The tips of the shoes
ahead of
the shades.

The hearts climb up high
to correct
a destination

We choose to avoid
being poked by
the chance.

  2. A comma can add so much to a picture sometimes, when it gives us a pause for breath...white/green, grass/birch :-)
