A Walk in the Snow

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017
Snow Bunting, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 14 February 2017.

Snow Bunting.

The morning after
the 24-hour blizzard
I snowshoed up
the sunlight trail
with Jack,

American Robin, Rockport, Maine, 14 February 2017.

American Robin.

the perfect dog.
At the summit
on the grassy roof
of Beech Nut,
We encountered

a little band of buntings
that stayed
then took flight
then circled,
twittering.
