The First Day of Spring

…Light! the pearl

has eaten the oyster.

The earth smells of old apples

and of things dead or a long time dying.

–Excerpt from “The First Day of Spring” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani(virtual artists collective, Chicago 2013). First published in Bluestem.
