poem: the Wren Songs and the Wiggle Bottoms
my dependable companions appear each morning this Spring outside the patio doors where I write upon arising early
the mother wren and her companion, aka the Wren Songs, her song of three to four notes filling the air
the rabbit couple, aka the Wiggle Bottoms, darting and rollicking on the lawn before the ‘lil woods
mom Wren Song begins her busy day of feeding her nestlings atop the hook pole, insect in beak, with a swoop to the nest inside the old grill
the Wiggle Bottoms appear to burrow in the hedgerow at the property line, they gyrate, kicking and jumping, then suddenly flop down nibbling the clover
these my trusty companions close by each day their company delightful singing, feeding, darting, nibbling

Spring’s greening peaks now outside my rainy window pane verily verdant vistas appear
Spring’s greening energy: sunlight, water, air chemically photosynthesizing
Spring’s greening leaves, sap running and sugar fueling powering the trees of Green Earth Home
Spring’s greening of these oldest living organisms bonding us together on our Way

Up early as always, writing and working on numerous new projects, I feel the need to move and clear my head which has become cluttered of late.
So out the door for a ramble around the house and property. Today I notice our first iris have bloomed, and the garden needs an overdue weeding like my mind!
Yes, I am feeling very creative and productive these days, and I feel I need to better channel this energy and become more focused. At 73, I am working as much as I ever have in my life with what matters most to my heart, soul, and spirit.
I just need to re-center back within my Self and follow the natural rhythm of life’s paradoxical tensions. Stop grasping and holding on too long, instead flowing from our center, engaging and withdrawing, remembering it is about the journey and not the destination.
