Spring Song

Ersatz harbingers
Starlings imitate robins
Over city streets.


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


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


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

Recycling Day

Ice on the sidewalks
A discarded Christmas tree
Shelters the sparrows.


Early Christmas treats
Red finches pluck the berries
From a holly wreath.


Flat silver river
Smooth as an unstruck nickel
Two gray geese descend.
