leap day

forgotten lavender drips from the cherry tree
blue jay steals the sun
with whistles
rich
and
sharp
suddenly he stops
and all lies silent
wind stilled to thinning clouds of day
sitting long enough--quiet enough
i can hear the crocus rising
blue jay starts up again
rich
and
sharp
chatter amongst the birds celebrates jet streams
and
sandhill cranes
come Spring
come ....
rich
and
sharp
