We walk, inhaling the cool winter morning. The last two days teased us with spring-like warmth, curling our toes in anticipation of the first blooming of magnolias. Nearby, dogs run excitedly towards the dog park. We amble towards the wooden bridge, careful of the snow-crusted grass. Over the bridge, we witness a family of ducks, busily combing the grass and shallow waters for food. Even with bare trees and melting ice-path, nature serenades a peaceful hymn.
grey dove hums above
tree with red thistle ends-
sun crackles - first note-
Dove from this morning's walk
