Redux: Awakening in the Spring

geese drinking water in strawberry park april 24


Spring brings a redux

of all forms of life

waking from a winter’s sleep

geese, squirrels, and other wildlife


Bringing antics

associated with the young

so much laughter

some are high strung


Watching the water

goslings learn to swim

playing follow the leader

diving on a whim


Seeing a fish jump

their eyes fill with wonder

attempting to catch one

missing as it goes under


Marching back to the nest

it’s time for a nap

mother tucking them in

under her wing wrap


Wonderful spring day

redux in the park

relaxing as children play

listening to the dog’s bark

Ah, your words made me feel just like I was right there in the park with you! Nice way to start the day, thank you!
