Murmurs of Spring


have you heard the news
that is rolling through the forest?
the swaying trees murmur "lean close
melt with me
follow the fluid of my sap"
I can almost hear
green growth pushing up through the dirt beneath my feet
bird song fills the air
a bear tosses and turns
soon to awaken from its warm winter lair
daily
murmurs
whispers
echos
spring is near

  65. Your poem, your pictures--they just strike such a deep response in me. I can hear the gurgling of the water beneath the ice--I can feel the bubbling of spring about to spring up from beneath the brown earth...I am so touched by mountain, sky and icy shore.
