Last Weeks of Winter

P1120776P1120737

 

Winter is weary

and we are wary

of forecasts

of yet more snow

and ice to come

 


Marsh in Autumn

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate the holiday!

and

Happy Autumn to those who don’t!

Spare the turkeys!

Dinosaurs

As Spring competes with Fall

for foliage

tree trunk dinosaurs

roam

the spotted green

tusset grass in the marsh.


Through the Green Lightly…

DSCN0853_edited-1 copy

through the pale veil of green

the tusset grasses grow

as the greening of the marsh

intensifies each longer day

while below frogs

and turtles

and fairy shrimp

dance their rite of spring

prey for the ducks,

crows, bald eagles,

  ephemeral lives

 we watch

nature raw

unawares

of the fragility

of us


Diamonds in the Marsh

Scintillating snow melts

and fills a pre-Spring marsh

full of sparkling jewels

where bedazzled frogs

 soon will hide.
