April is the cruelest month?

“April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.” T.S. Eliot quotes "The Wasteland"

[Lilacs in bloom on a street in Slovakia]

April Rainbow

We race up the hill
To catch a rainbow
Dark to the right
Light to the left
Thru droplets of rain
A mist of colors
Drops from the sky
Onto the red red roof

April in Paris

The only time I was ever in Paris was in April.
It was rainy and gray, except for this day!

"I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never new my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

Till april in paris, chestnuts in blossom
Holiday tables under the trees
April in paris, this is a feeling
That no one can ever reprise"
Song by Harburg/Duke

Pastel, 8x10, $225.

April Showers- New York

New York. New York.
Or any city.
A view through raindrops-

a taxi, buildings, lights;
someone not singing in the rain.
Woosh. Wet. Splash!
April showers.

Watercolor, 8x10, $150.

The egg.
Symbol of renewal.
Birth, and rebirth.
Immortality and eternity.

April Umbrellas

Down comes the rain.
Up go the umbrellas.
From above we see:
a box of trix,
or a box of crayons,
or a field of flowers.
Yes, April showers.
