I so agree about Daylight Savings Time. If people want to arrange more light in the evening, why don't they just reset the hours of their work, instead of messing with everybody's clock, and pretending that noon comes at eleven?

I've been saying that since I was a little kid. There is some evidence that changing the time is detrimental to our health - there are more heart attacks on the time change days than any other day. And it makes people just cranky!

I love your poems and admire how you capture feelings and seasons so deftly; I like to write but the crafting of poetry is elusive to me (except for a smattering of haiku).

Amen and amen about DST - I hate it! It takes my body at least two weeks to get in sync with the "spring forward" time ("fall back" isn't so bad). Even now, though I am retired, I still have a difficult time getting into pace with this artificially induced "time". I wish the powers-that-wannabe would just leave well enough alone!

Thank you, I'm glad you liked them.

Yes and yes, but why can't "they" figure it out?

Hey, Kathleen, I enjoy rereading these poems every time they run. I love the picture of your life you paint (so deftly) even though I don't know what a killdeer sounds like. Your poems still read like songs to me. Thank you again and again.
