POEM - On Easter Weekend

On Easter weekend, we pull all the screens
And with hard streams of water from aging
Green snake-like hoses and leaky faucets
Remove the vast accretion of Winter
In our lives; areas we simply let
Go, let slide, let become automatic.
Water that removes the cobwebs and dust
Moves with glacial grace down the black driveway,
In little rivulets, toward the gutter,
On its way to join all of the other
Streams of holy water, making their way
From their respective hoses and driveways,
And leaky faucets; their cleansing mission:
To remove all the lifelessness that snow
And the cold hard seasons heap upon us.
