robin song

this morning i opened the window
to listen to the first long robin song.
 robin was in front of my house
singing his heart out.
and my heart was healed.
spring is here.
 there have been a few more small prints this week
and about 15 half sheet prints (big ones)
for the book project.
 i put some plant papers with the prints
to see if they can dance together
or at least converse,
not argue.
 on my walk
the sky and that weird structure
my neighbor built (he of the unfinished projects)
 the deer are everywhere,
moving, eating, 
even on the river here, 
though it moved away before i could press the shutter
 this one was napping just by the fence
near the roadside!
i did stop to check on it
 it was in fine fettle
winter is still holding on,
but it is springing out there. 
big prints

Bird song and the light caught in melting ice ... nature's imprints ... small things to make the heart glad

no doubt the deer are as happy to see (and hear) Spring as you are. those printed pages look wonderful.

Velma Bolyard said...

Those papers are dancing and singing with each other (and the robin.)

Velma Bolyard said...

Spring is still so softly coloured and muted over your way - but I am glad it has arrived for you. Can't wait to see the letterpress pages done - big excitement!

barry, with the robins came the woodcock, my favorite weird-o bird.
fiona, still muddy looking, and then yesterday i woke to a new 3 or 4 inches of snow.
