An Introduction

It's the day before or the day of or some days after the vernal equinox. There's a name for this day that someone told me in car driving away from the sunshine on Stephen's Coyote Ridge. But I don't recall that name. Here in the Okanagan Valley, parking lots are still scabbed with sand and ice. The hills have a kind of psoriasis of snow. But for all the umber and buff, the red moss occupying that retaining wall in Scenic Canyon remembers the red in the Ponderosa pine. Yesterday we saw a Ponderosa whose needles had fallen and its branches curled into itself like arthritic fingers. Turns out you can blame it on the moss. The phlegm of ice in the spring marsh. Whatever you want. Blame it on the three poems and a story we bring you to go along with all the new light.
