On the far edge of Spring
We hung the sunshade yesterday
golden and bold above the back porch.
Songbirds sent territorial calls soaring heavenward
hoping the fiery sun would come out to play.
This morning the trees danced swaying in midair —
branches thick with buds aching to parade their colors
before our spring-starved eyes.
