February 2, 2023


the birds are returning home
pale blue skies
and weather too warm for february
are a welcome invitation
to our leafless trees

they search for old nests
brown and dry from the winter
hoping to bring them back to life

they tell of their adventures
with singing voices
as the sun comes up
each song, a tale of their delight
homecoming compositions
that have never been heard
