life stirs 

excited birdsong from 
leafless trees,
melodies on new wind...
squirrels scurry frantic 
to grassy pantries, 
feast unearthed...
polecat odor 
becomes fragrance fresh, 
a sign of senses 

step lightly! 
step cautious! 

life stirs anew 
March to April to spring. 

shed coats 
to the breeze 
the sun 
the season, 

peeling dead flesh 
away from 
frozen bones.
