Spring Song

Author’s Photo

Look straight up now!
Into that dome of impossible blue:
Red tailed hawk swoops interlocking circles,
Pretending to ignore crows flapping after,
Shouting protection for nests in creaky voices

Closer in, deep green of needles
Gives way to nubbles of shiny chartreuse
Peppered everywhere with tiny beginnings
Of auburn cones–food for chickadees…
