Nesting Season

Birds bumping into the screens and windows.

Did they feel the equinox bump us

into nesting season? The robins came early

and found snow covering the frozen worms.

I want to leave the nest now.



You Come Too

I went out to feel the equinox.
I raked leaves away from young shoots,
and connected the hose, washed away mud
until the walkway was clear. I wasn’t
gone long, but my coffee was cold.
