Making lasagna
at 8:00 a.m. just seems wrong.
The smell permeates.

I watch groundhogs graze
and listen to merlins call.
This morning’s wildlife.

It’s a reading day.
Trying to keep calm about
the essay that’s due.

Snowy morning walk.
Feeling virtuous because
I got up today.

Happy Birthday, Jack –
you’d have been twenty today.
I’m so very sad.

Kak-kak-kak-kak call
the merlins in the backyard.
“Nest here,” we whisper.

Spring peepers peeping.
Carry on your swamp party –
an aural delight.

Stare at last year’s leaves –
a carpet in some places –
and wish them away.

Getting out of bed
proved difficult this morning
(psychically, that is).

Frosty morn filled with
bird noise — cardinals, robins,
woodpeckers drumming.
