Spring Song

Ersatz harbingers
Starlings imitate robins
Over city streets.

Stolid

Rainy winter day
Geese stand like statues of geese
On the sodden lawn.

Ephemeral

Flurrying snowflakes
Swarm over a frozen stream
Like summer midges.

Inception

The first flakes of snow
Stitched on a gray quilt of sky
Gulls soar silently.

Aerie

Peregrine falcon
Perched on a skyscraper ledge
Dusk falls down the streets.

Lurk

Mysterious eyes
Peering from a secret cave
A cat in a box.

Sortie

January thaw
Beehives send scouting parties
Searching for the spring.
