April 20th, 2018



Today is sunny and pleasant.  I went out to feed the birds.  All the cardinals are yelling at each other.  I had fun joining them.  :D

My daffodils are blooming everywhere.  White hyacinths, tiny white jonquils, and some other white flowers blooming in the white garden.  Plenty of violets now. 

Against the Wall

The Tohono O’odham people have territory spanning Arizona and Mexico.  They oppose not only the Wall of Trumpery but also any military presence on their land.  Aho!  Obviously, with their tribe divided across two countries, they go back and forth all the time, so a wall or armed guards would make their lifestyle completely unfeasible.  While the article didn't mention this part, that makes it an act of genocide -- again -- if they're invaded and caged by force.  I wish them luck in holding off the invasion.

Poem: "A Pattern of Devotion"

This poem is spillover from the February 6, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] peoriapeoriawhereart. It also fills the "queerplatonic" square in my 1-31-18 card for the Valentines Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles. It belongs to the Antimatter & Stalwart Stan thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.
