Alarm clock ringing,

Cardinals and robins sing

Waiting for sunrise.

February 29

The sun is up now,

Finches and sparrows are here.

Still waiting for spring.

Spring now?

Sun soon has risen,

Newspaper lies on the porch,

I retrieve barefoot.


You stand by my bed,

Waiting for breakfast and love,

I just need more sleep.

Pink Sky

Our dog has been fed,

Our coffee is ready, now

We wait for the sun.
