Journey to Spring
Some days are bright and warm,
followed by cold and snow.
Like the motion of the tides
or the moon, once full, now waning –
the season ebbs and flows
on its slow journey to spring.
Lake’s surface becomes too soft
to support those that fish through ice.
We are headed into a new situation,
wondering how it will unfold.
Announcement: Lainie’s paintings will be on display at the headquarters of the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge during the month of March 2020.
