Uproar

a turbulent time

the planet in an uproar

the earth pushes back

steady roll, unrelenting –

it seems warnings are no more

Spring Dance

a pair of cardinals

in my garden – in spring dance

they zip here, fly there

pecking at freshly tilled soil

a cold and windy spring day

Dusk

on nearing daybreak

night eases to a halt

day moon takes its place

readying for dusk

the sleepy eyes of dawn

which comes with its own demands

Holding On

Last evening while the setting sun was writing its own story cantankerous clouds to the right were leaving deep smudges in the evening skies.

The bird songs outside my window were unrelenting, piercing the roar of the harsh spring winds. Even the delicate cherry blossoms are standing up to this latest rage.

It seems we are all to discover what we are made of. In the end, we are all just holding on.

the ire of spring

that will not be placated –

belligerent storms

Spirits

smudged skies

Plumes of smoke follow her
swirling as she moves from room to room

“Smudging mean spirits”, she explains

As she moves about, there were whispered words escaping her lips. His young mind wonders,
“Who is she talking to?”

He’d best be well behaved today.
