Spring at Davidson Lake!

Spring at Davidson Lake

Today, the woods are
full of chattering
avian architects and Romeos,
building nests,
broadcasting songs
to seduce mates, and
exchanging threats
from the tree tops
as they work
warning other
avian flyers away.

Mossy carpets bask in
bright sunshine
soon to dim
when Summer’s
leaf canopy blooms.

Canoes rest upended
awaiting passengers
to fill their empty shells,
paddling to hidden beaches
for romance and play.

At the edge of the woods,
grass blooms in
darker green hues
long absent in Winter.

Hardy dandelions surge
to gain ground
while they can
and try to stake
their claim.

A volunteer pine
tree begins its
long climb to the sky.

An exercise station
on the fitness trail
awaits the arrival
of local denizens
with healthy-me resolutions.

A sunny day,
a gentle breeze,
a calm lake,
and a lone traveler
just sitting and dreaming
of yester-Springs.
