One night last week it was finally warm enough
(i.e., just slightly above freezing) to walk
over the Brooklyn Bridge. Though it was dark by the time
I got to the other side, it was my favorite time of
day—the blue hour—when I started across.

I know these don't look much like flowers
right now. But in two or three months
the frozen buds on this dogwood tree outside
my window will burst into bloom and
the tree will be covered with pink blossoms.

Although I would never take for granted
the digital camera that captured this
shot from a speeding train—or want to give up the
camera or the train—it would be fun to travel back

Last Saturday, it snowed—again.
Sunday morning everything was encased in ice.
Then the sun came out and it all began to melt.
Unfortunately, by Monday morning this
puddle was solid ice—again.

Why are they called grapefruit when
they don't look or taste anything like a grape?
I've tried (because they do look so good),
but this is one of the few foods—
along with mushrooms and anything
completely disgusting (like tripe or haggis)—
that I'd just as soon not eat, thank you.
Are you a fan?
