To February

our bluejay jeer-jeers 
amid newly-forming buds 
before he disappears

Notes: My camera missed our bluejay, but it found some signs of spring in the buds.

Here is some life-coaching from Margaret Atwood’s February:

You’re the life principle,
more or less, so get going
on a little optimism around here.
Get rid of death. Celebrate increase. Make it be spring.
