watershed, snowmelt

vast snowfields gave way
to spring longings
no, realities.
green pointy things in gardens
are appearing.
watershed
snowmelt
rivulet
stream
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
spring?
