March 26: Grateful

Footprints melting in snow--
thank you card sent late
better than not at all.

March 25: Sublimation

Sunny, above freezing--
one molecule at a time
snow disappears.

March 24: Looking for a Snowy Owl

A Snowy Owl has been seen regularly in the vicinity of Weskeag Marsh. After work today my husband and I tried to find it, with no luck. We were OK with that.

No real disappointment
to look for a Snowy Owl
and find bluebirds instead.

March 23: Bright sky, cold night

Cat curled up asleep.
Outside, bright crescent moon hangs
with Venus, Dog Star.

March 22: Merganser

A duck's splashless dive.
Cold consequences
of things we wish we hadn't said.

March 21: Dead Red-tail

Boys call it an owl.
Dead hawk's talons are curled tight
as if against cold.

March 20: First Day of Spring

North, a solar eclipse--
here, weak sunlight reflecting
on dirty snow.
