Spring 2009: the Procession Continues



































Walking home from work on March 6: on Ingomar Street: 'Pickwick' crocuses and 'Ice Follies' daffodils. On Belt Road, prunus incam x 'Okame', Okame cherry tree.



Call and response

Across the quiet of a Sunday morning
bright chirping of sparrows
deep notes of the dove
call and response.
The winter wind intervenes
a strong gust silencing the birdsong.
And yet the first chords have sounded
the magnificent procession
of spring.
