yes it was yesterday, i think they may have over-celebrated and lost count.
the fairy dance
the soft stars are shining,
the moon is alight;
the folk of the forest
are dancing tonight:
o swift and gay
is the song that they sing:
they float and sway
as they dance in a ring.
o seek not to find them,
the wee folk so fair;
they’re shy as the swallow
and swift as the air:
if you come, they are gone
like a snowflake in may:
like a breath, like a sigh,
they vanish away.
-katherine davis (1892-1980)

followed a rainbow on my first walk in spring
“if you have ever followed a rainbow to its end, it leads you to the ground on which you are standing.”

Almost halfway thru January, February is a short month, then March …
it’s like only 20 minutes (as per Jerry Seinfeld’s calculations)

early evening in the park on the river in spring
crew teams have returned with the birds.
“all were merged into one smoothly working machine;
they were, in fact, a poem of motion, a symphony of swinging blades.”
