    A Natural Selection # 2

    THE SWIFT

    The familiar forked tail
    And crescent wing
    Of the agile Swift in sky
    Performing aerobatics
    Above the fields of gold
    So pleasing to the eye

    THE CHILL WIND

    The chill wind
    Bitter and biting
    Buffeted the house
    Rattling the windows
    And whistling at the door
    Exploiting every weakness
    Exposing every crack
    To chill us to our bones

    THE SPRING MELT

    The heavily laden
    Mountain slopes
    Slowly shed their winter coat
    Beginning the slow spring melt
    The snow and ice
    Releasing the water
    Imprisoned within it
    Metamorphosing as it seeps
    Into every crevice
    Rivulets gently trickling
    Into dormant streams
    Gaining volume and momentum
    As it tumbles downward
    Swelling and growing
    Feeding cascading waterfalls
    And white water rapids
    As it races to the valleys below

    THE CHERRY BLOSSOM

    The cherry blossom
    Filled the tree
    A brief spectacle
    Of perfect beauty
    Until the petals fell
    Like pink snowflakes
    And in the breeze
    Danced like confetti
    Outside the church
    On our wedding day

    A BUMBLE BEE BUSIES

    A bumble bee busies
    A Butterfly rises and dips
    And there amid velvet petals
    A single hummingbird sips

    THE PIERCING OF THE WIND

    The piercing of the wind
    Iced like the mountain peaks
    Brought water to my eyes
    And a stinging to my cheeks
    It left hands too cold to grip
    And lips to numb to speak
    It cut through my cloak
    And made the outlook bleak

    THE RICH FED GROUSE THRIVE ON THE MOOR

    The rich fed grouse thrive on the moor
    The golden hare lives on the valley floor
    In the meadow youíll find rabbits there
    While the fox sits patiently in his lair

    WHITE AS LUNAR LIGHT

    White as Lunar light
    Moonshine birds fly lonely skies
    Where echoes canít be heard

    BUTTERFLIES FLUTTER BY # 2

    Butterflies flutter by
    On pale Cabbage white wings,
    Heralds of beauty

    SNOWDROPS IN WINTER

    Snowdrops in winter
    Mother natures heralds
    Of the coming spring

    This is pretty good. No thing morbid about it.
