Spring Dig – Abhanga

in melting snow puddle

bits of worm lost in flight

lost its wiggle, lost fight-

black birds spring dig

Without Ease

We are suffering through blustery winds right now. Some giving and taking going on between winter and spring. I’m staying out of their way as I listen and watch as they work it out.

achy groans..

marauding winds whip

without ease

Slow Reveal

in a slow reveal

the promise of spring is closer to being realized

branches stand clad in nubs soon to be buds

sparrows and starlings cling to fine branches like leaves that ought to be

time stands ready this season on this trip around the sun

will you be here to welcome the delicate white blooms of the pear tree?

will they enjoy the gentle flicker
in the spring breeze without your fleeting gaze?

it is a slow reveal
