Unexpected

 

Two old cats

chase each other

through the house

awakened by

spring’s arrival.

I throw open shuttered windows,

unlatch storm doors,

watch robins worm in mud

and straw grass.

Oops! Winter’s back!

 

 


Author Notes

Just when I thought spring was here for good, two feet of snow arrived. The gods were kind. It melted quick.
