April Snow

An April snow

Falls in thick, flat flakes

Like lacy angels

From a pale gray sky.

 Birds gather

In tall treetops –

Trees that stand,

Bare-branched,

Dreaming wistfully

of Spring and leaves.

The feeder is a busy café,

Yellow-eyed grackles and

Red-winged blackbirds

Take a spot at the counter…

And still, the snow falls.DSC_0864
