Skies grey or stunning blue, cloudless,
Incessant phoebe trilling lulls, like cicadas.
Deer poop and prints.
A film of snow, flurries blowPeepers, yeah.
When will the loons come?Crows warble their cawing, burbling like water in their throats -
Unseen barred owls call ...
Chipmunks scurry, then 'chuck' from their shelters
Maple blooms float, milfoil fragments
Green-hued water, reflections
Turkey vultures show off their flying skillsMarsh marigolds
Wood ducks, muskrats
Pollen breezes -
Ticks crawl, tickleThe slumbering world has woken fullyA wondrous unfurling.
