What Spring Brings

Goldfinch
Or Warbler
Which yellow and
Black bird visits my
feeder?

One
Or the
Other or both?
Along with the
Regulars; woodpecker, wrens and
Doves

Will
The feeder
Distract the birds
From cabbage butterflies and
Dragonflies?

The
View from
The picture window;
Every moment is pure
magic

Currently Flowing; Air

Windy
Cold air
Chills my bones
Looking forward to spring
Blooming

Running
A few
Errands here and
There, but mostly stayed
Indoors

Yet
I still
Met my goal
Five miles stepped and
Danced

Mist Adventure

Three
Teens across
The creek hug
Hide something in a
Tree

Odd
Thing to
Do at dusk
With days’ light ending
Soon

Questioning
To wonder
Down and querry
Or just leave their
Mystery…

They’ll
Never know
I saw their
Odd event of spring
Celebration?

Whether
There was
More to it
Than that – I’ll not
Know…

Finally, Spring?
(haibun-type with Elfje)

Six twenty-eight this morning was the official time;
however Spring may be delayed as Winter hangs
on to the petticoat of warm hopes, like a child clinging
securely to their mother not wanting to let go for
fear of being forgotten, not ready to move forward.

Winters’
Tight grip
Seeks attention as
Mother Nature moves towards
Spring

Spring Reaction; Go!
(haibun with renga)

Another year another change in policy
To protects the worker bees and families
Time for checking in with healthcare providers,
(Especially when there has been some lapse).
Test here test there, then wait for results –
Though some are put on notice for further trials.
The body that has aged mostly in good health
Might have a surprise or two after a few miles.

below the layers
and in between components
things are that should nought

so another appointment
for investigation looms

things are going to
be put right and corrected

(Note: While physicals should be annual and perhaps other tests in different
cycles, sometimes they are not. Not all tests can be done at the same office.
I am though so far, in fairly good shape for the shape I’m in…).

Spring Greys
(mini haibun)

Oh where be the Green O’spring
(Just three days from the starting line)?
The flock of red breasted robins have returned
Looking for safe purchase in the hedge
Their internal clocks say it’s time to build nests!
Both bush and tree seems to remain barren –
If there were buds, they’ve been squirreled away!
They play King of the Hill on ‘white’ mounds of snow!
Even the Red Wing blackbirds have gathered in groups

Yellow dawning sun
Rises in the crisp blue sky;
colorless cold chills

Spring View?
(katuata (count-type) pieces)
*
long shadows looming
over the crisp field of snow
proves that the moon is shining
*
bitter cold creates
delays for schools and commutes
rearranging schedule starts
*
boulders line the roads
of the wintry mix that was
once known as Snowstorm Stella
