Only Days

Under normal conditions ...
5-10 days most vegetable seeds germinate
12 days of Christmas never fails to elate
21 days to form a new habit
28 to break it
50 days of Easter
Says the preacher
Plus 2, for us (much to our surprise) love resumed
In this short span for each other we made room
An Easter lily in full bloom is temptingly beautiful
And what we feel is indisputable
Resist if you want
I don’t mean to be nonchalant
Lazarus had been in the tomb four days already
According to Jewish law beyond all remedy
And yet, you resurrected me
You say my poetry is sappy
I counter: Abnormally happy
Today is 80.
