Spring’s Return

Clearing SkyClearing Sky

Spring’s Return

Sun salutes the morning sky

after days of solemn rain and mist.

Lawns, meadows and fields

are deep green and soft.

A flow of flowers decorate

newly budding trees.

Chipping sparrow chants

a singular staccato trill

while the cardinal croons

a run of sweet notes.

Spring’s return is rich

with color and song.

Fretful Spring

Fretful Spring

Blue skies are absent –

continual rain and gloom

shuffles spring season,

encourages wayward weeds.

Pewter lake lies languid and still

but perky goldfinches,

with white wing bars

like taut guitar strings,

perch on feeder and voice

their “potato-chip” objections

with each disturbance.

Below, forsythia blossoms mirror

birds’ bright yellow breasts.

Wild March Winds

The wild March winds

slam feeder against the staff.

Squirrels scuffle below

to savor falling seeds.

In a moment of melancholy

one remember springs, now past –

whose times are missed.

A break in the weather,

return of sun’s warmth,

brings a smile as one steps

into the new season.

Early April & Announcement

Early April

In strengthening spring sun

last remnants of snow dissolve –

drip from roof’s edges,

form rivulets along path.

Robins arrive in garden, search

for worms under decaying leaves.

Sprouts of daffodils stretch

their long, green limbs upwards

as if to gather armfuls

of shimmering solar rays.

All Systems Go & Announcement

All Systems Go

The shine of quarter moon

fades into new light

from fire of rising sun.

Mist, a white shroud,

hovers as a gaseous vapor

above lake’s thinning ice.

Nature puts on the other shoe

with all systems set

to go towards spring.

Contemplating Spring
The cycle of seasons

moves slowly forward.

In night’s final hour

Aurora sweeps her long skirt,

shimmering with colors,

across the wide horizon.

As dawn calmly blinks open,

we patiently wait for

short days to lengthen,

spring’s new light to arrive.
