npm2020 poetry videos day 4 "Launch"

My National Poetry Month Project 2020 is to record a short video each day in April featuring me presenting my published poems.  For poetry lovers of all ages!

Today's poem features crocuses and rocketships.


Crocuses are rocketing
     inch by inch
          out of the crumbled earth

the yellows aim for the sun
the purples push      toward deep space

      and inside
little astronauts in orange suits
   cock their ruffled helmets
                  toward spring
