welcome drip

by Kevin T. McEneaney

end of snowy pelt

mid-winter ice melt


small humps of ice

dirty, not nice


fevered plant or two

poke ice-crust through


as snow evaporates

landscape translates


birds less frantic

at feeder less panic


eye of bridge,

ice on ridge


creek brimming bank

harsh screech of hawk


wet-matted leaves

gentle cool breeze


treading soft earth

elevates joy of life
