March Commences

As March’s month commences,

with a loud call from a cardinal

and lessening of winter winds,

one’s hopes jump quickly

into a new season – instead,

shocked by steady snow.

Spring seems far away

as winter’s weary trip continues.

No hurt comes from

weather’s constant vagrancies -

only a need for patience

and, in time, pleasant days

will again prevail.

March Wind & Annoucement

March WindMarch Wind Sails Over Ice of Frozen Lake
March Wind
Dried, pale leaves of beech,

like scraps of worn fabric,

torn from branches in streams

of strong March wind,

jet through open space

into empty vernal air.

Meltwater on frozen lake

forms pools that mirror

shimmer of setting sun,

as seasons flip from frigid winter

into warm, sweet spring.

Birds at dawn announce this

transition with renewed trills.
