Welcoming spring with a Haiku
A male Goldfinch sings.
The snow melts, but will return.
Spring is almost here.
I stepped outside this morning to see a small group of Waxwings going to town on some berries, and I got that feeling... the feeling of Spring trying to battle Winter. I heard my first Goldfinch sing this morning. So far, I've heard Cardinals, Juncos, White-throated/Song/Am. Tree sparrows, Red-winged Blackbirds, Screech Owl, Titmice, Chickadees, Woodpeckers drumming.... now the Goldfinch.
Other than the fall, this is my favorite time of the year.... as Spring slowly creeps up from the earth and gracefully falls from the sky.
