April 18: Looking up

Almost too high to see--
crow chases a hawk
out of its airspace.

April 17: Kinglets foraging at the library on a chilly spring morning

Kinglet's ruby crown
flares, catches the morning sun.
Spring. We're all on fire.

April 16: Spring snowfall

I wake from strange dreams
to snow on the ground--
am I still sleeping?

April 15: Spring mist

Morning mist veils
bare branches.
Two vultures swoop low.

April 14: Cardinalsong

On my two-mile run
through the neighborhood,
five cardinals singing.

April 13: The Masters

Watching golf on TV, immersed in another, much warmer climate...

Golfer about to swing.
Carolina Wren's loud song
fills the green hush.

April 12: Back in the garden at last

Today is my youngest sister's birthday, and what a beautiful day it is!

All morning I rake,
exposing tulip leaves
to the jubilant sun.
