We Remain in the Midst of the Long-Running Series About the Spring of 2006 Here on Poetry Thursday

April 10, 2006
We made blueberry pancakes on Saturday morning

and the first batch was
a disaster
griddle too hot
every pancake burned on the outside
raw on the inside
really miserable
that we had to throw the whole thing out
and start over

But the second batch was divine
cakey and tall
and done to golden perfection
with fat juicy berry explosions inside

Then we went out
to wander around
and buy some flowers
Pink and yellow rununculus
that look like spring and Easter
a relief to the eye in these
continued steely grey days
