along the path
on our walk
by the river
these tin soldiers
in the sun
await their moment
to fly once more.

“at last came the golden month of the wild folk–
honey-sweet May, when the birds come back,
and the flowers come out,
and the air is full of the sunrise scents and songs of the dawning year.”
― samuel scoville jr.

when we set out on our hike
to see what spring animals
were out there
we thought maybe
we’d see a bear
awakening from a long winter’s nap
though we most likely
scared any creature
who happened to be in our oncoming path
or most anywhere in the vicinity
with our marching and laughing and yelling and jumping
we looked closer
and at last
found an animal
passed over by many
who was not afraid of us
just waiting to to be discovered
a single ant.
“life is denied by lack of attention, whether it be to cleaning windows or trying to write a masterpiece.”
maybe the pool opens when the last of the snow vanishes?
“nature is never static. it is always changing. everything is in a constant state of flux.
nothing endures. everything is in the process of either coming into being or expiring.”
