Spring Picnic

Spring Picnic

That first tidbit of food
that morsel of potato salad
or that sip of lemonade—
activates what April picnics
are fated to attract
as surely as ants—
afternoon rains,
predicted as a slight chance
for this vicinity,
but now diluvial
in their force.


For dVerse Poets Open Link. Night  and also making use of these six prompts from different sites: food, vicinity, diluvial, tidbit, activate and afternoon.

      Ha!!!!! I guess I only realized that subconsciously when I selected the photo? My deceased grandpa’s 90+ year old brother, Klaus, was visiting and this was the reason for the picnic. His favorite trick was standing on his head for us… even at that age.

      Ha.. You just want it to settle the dust. I looked today and there was a fine layer of dust over the black cabinet in my bathroom. So I guess I am getting dust.
