Connections: February 12.18

Icy visage

deck as mirror

transparent message:

winter’s still here.

Encased in numbing

frozen air

the world succumbs

to dark despair.

But wait! What errant

buoy is this?

What harbinger

of warming bliss?

Why does it glower

all grumpy of feather

as though I ordered

this lousy weather?

 

Yes, robins, dear reader! A red-breasted throng of them on the heels of freezing rain. And all frowning. What did they expect? Palm trees?

Connections: June 4

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAHey, little bug! Do you know why you’re green?

So you can sit on a leaf and not be seen!

Yet here you are

appendicular

neon

on my screen.

Where are your bug wits? You should be more sly

hiding from hungry robin’s eye.

Is it just

that you must

touch

that raspberry sky?
