Lucky Day 13 of National/Global Poetry Writing Month (AKA NaPoWriMo). Lucky rainy day. Spring showers and such. The sound of the rain and gentle thunder last night was comforting. Today is what my dad would call “an all-day soaker.” With Easter this Sunday, it is a good time for the “Spring” oracle card from Angels and Ancestors deck by Kyle Gray and Lily Moses to come up.

while wet will rot the tomatoes.
Watch for encroaching weeds
sometimes, try a different crop
for orchids will not grow
in zone four.
