watershed, snowmelt

vast snowfields gave way
to spring longings
no, realities.
green pointy things in gardens
are appearing.
that's how it is in april.

and today i begin 
spring break
i am home studying spring
listening to birds
fending off ticks
(20 on two dogs and one human
after 45 minutes in the woods)
no matter, we must learn
to live together.
i am so happy 
there is only a little snow and ice left
here and there.
 are you celebrating

Yes...celebrating spring...putting wee red beads onto a piece I'm calling "Velma's Berries"...after that photo you let me save. Will send you a photo of the completed piece...with hearty thanks! (Oh...and waiting for real berries to appear on my Mountain Ash...)
