Anticipating Seasons

Wee pussy willow bud still hiding in dark case,
untidy squirrel's nest of oak leaves action sees.
With more direct sun's rays a hint of change takes place;
shy doe tracks deepen in the snow; young bring weight increase.

Draped weeping willows, yellow-green engage the eye.
Indented trails, car tracks in new snow, show a thawing mode.
Is that a robin, oversoon, longs home to fly?
Such subtle change is seen along a quiet country road.

Inherent in a certain kind of heart and mind,
at least, of like background, surroundings, growing up ways,
anticipating nature's season change to find,
unfolding of tomorrow in the sun's roused rays.
