Seeking surprise

Hi everyone,

Here’s my Word of the Month poem for April.

Where Surprise Hides

It’s no surprise
to catch your breath
at a sunrise.
No surprise
to shake your head
when a villain lies.

There’s no surprise
but sadness
when a pet dies.
No surprise
when a drive-through box
asks, “You want fries?

To find surprise,
drink from the pools
of your lover’s eyes.
