early March

Early March

Soggy fields, muddy cleats, rained out games
one bright pink canopy amid a sea of black umbrellas
Lenten roses, somber churches, wilderness time
blessings, blessings, blessings
there is the ballet of basketball
and the circus is in town -
all of life feels like
a high wire act
full of grace
there are baskets waiting to be filled
with small chocolate rabbits,
marbled candy eggs
and the promise of spring.
