Spring slides

Spring slides stealthily into summer
covered by the staccato fire of crickets
bee-thrum
and the fluting conversation of orioles.

Bedstraw sheds honey beneath the shade
and in the hedges
among moss-lined twig-tresses
tiny bead-black eyes
watch the slow glide of buzzards.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
