Winds of Change

Blue Jays return to leafless trees in a clamor
Cardinals quietly reoccupy the Briar
and above the Bridge swung open
Starling troupes vanish into their ballet
suddenly reappearing in the empty Sky

Pigeons dance around prospective Mates
Squirrels spiral keeping Rhythm on the Bark
Spring and Winter wrestle in the Air
the over-lapping Season has commenced
the Winds of Change have reached the Coast
soon again the Landscape will go green
Tides washing and new Grasses mulching
last year’s Footprints into Memory
