March equinox dons lamb’s wool
the first day of spring

snatching liquid snow
from the puddle near the fence
silent and thirsty

red lichen dot folds

sitting in the sun

1 and a half feet
juniper split from the weight
of early spring snow

shedding muddy boots
on the rug by the white door
a black beetle crawls

flattened dirty snow
crusty and black near the porch
frees the columbine

Liz’s clear blue eyes
when she pulls on monkey socks
KitKat bunny ears

chocolate craving
combs the SuperValu aisles
looking for a snack

of Meercat mansion

sandpaper crystal
reflects the moon in a leaf
spring thaw flutters by
