Spring. We are warming and warming here with temperate sunny days punctuated by chilled rains. Rivers are full enough, that vitamin D is rocking my world, and I may just be taking full advantage of the lack of work hours I've been scheduled for. Last week I snuck away to the Rockies for a whirlwind trip driving a best friend east to a Virginia return. Ahhhh the open road. Springer fever? New seasons? Wonder. Move. Breathe. It's almost like coming out of hibernation. And although this season is not void of its own challenges - as a whole the world feels warmer, brighter, and vibrant. Scheming and dreaming are inevitable and perhaps more epic stories - just around the river bend.

the birds are quiet

when the sky is dark
creaks and strains float through my window
of heavy metal grinding steel rails
a muffled whistle of man made transportation
quietened by ever growing spring leaves
