Another Rainy Day

The heavy grey sky

Laden with rain falls on us

Bringing fertile spring fields.

Rain II

Rain again tonight,

Snow and ice melt down the street.

Will the river rise again?

Sunrise

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.
