HABITATION A chorus of calls, Announcing their arrival. Birds return with spring.
BIRD BATH A glint in the sun. Splashes from a rain puddle. Small birds, getting clean.
Too happy, I was. An uncomfortable state; Quick fix – sabotage!
When alone – warm, sweet. Together, a horror show. Leader calls, attack!
Other’s families – Warm, welcoming, stable, fun. Not mine, my burden.
Two prints side by side. A disturbance in the snow. Two feet, four paws – tug!
The days are longer. A gentle breeze flirts some warmth. More snow! Bitter hag.
AWAKEN Same time, later date. Always surprises – the light. Spring is drawing near.
