Whispers Of Spring

Gray geese alight cautiously
Then huddle on sheets of ice,
Cold playa lake crackles lightly,
Implores release from gelid vise.

Blue skies stretch unto horizon,
Caress virgin snows on mesas,
Where on breath of ancient bison
Whispers stir of green praderas.

Coyote lopes ‘cross flaxen seas,
Pursues rabbit hell-bent on flight,
Downslope winds sway piñon trees,
Arroyos dream of turbulent delight. 

Rowdy crows give raucous chase,
Lone hawk eludes on heavy wing,
Sandstone cliffs forgo wintry solace
To sunlight kisses that herald spring.
