Today I saw a pair of Robins - Spring is getting closer.
Earlier today I saw a Heron.
Earlier this week I saw a pair of geese setting up housekeeping on the edge of our pond.
Last month the doves returned to our yard.
It may seem like winter will never end, but the birds know for certain in their bones, and so we have hope.
The birds have returned
as winter slowly lets go
Soon shoots will appear
and green will grow
Warmth will be common
with spring no snow
