March 14, 2017

Spring’s a week away

yet today--a blizzard

Schools are closed

Buses have stopped

Governors have issued warnings

Worriers have stocked up

on milk and bread

gasoline for the snow blower

deicer for the sidewalk.

Comfortable and warm

I watch clouds of flakes

swirl and pile up

on fence posts and

last year’s weeds.

All is still and quiet.

Then a flash of red—

a faithful cardinal

here to sing his matins.
