Another Poem in the Ongoing Series About the Winter of 2006

January 26, 2006
I’ve been meaning for weeks to put down

the flowers we had at my birthday party
and the glass vessels we put them in

I’m usually not much a one for flowers in glass
but these worked out gorgeously

Dark pink peonies
in a big square-sided glass jar in the hall

pale pink tulips
in a squat round jar in the living room

and bright pink cherry blossom branches
in a milk jug in the bedroom
