Summer in a Day

In a cold spring,  just one day.

Hot blue sky sun has me thinking

summer with the leaves, bees and ants.

But I need to bring plants inside

tonight and turn on wintertime heat again.


Things Undone


The birds sense winter coming this morning.

Sparrows flutter, fight and search the eaves

for hiding places from the next season.

Blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, all anxiously feeding,

reminding me of things still left undone.
