shadows of poems



I'm very much enjoying my first Spring in rural upstate New York.

In the past couple of hours spent sipping tea and looking out through a large glass sliding door, I've seen a rainbow...

Red - Cardinals and Rose Breasted Grosbeaks.
Orange - a small flock of Baltimore Orioles, and Robins.
Yellow - American Goldfinches and Evening Grosbeaks.
Green - females of the above.
Blue - Eastern Bluebirds.
Indigo - I'll cheat a little - the deeper shades of Blue Jays.
Violet - throngs of Purple Finches.

I'll always remember the beauty of Colorado, and I do miss Mountain Chickadees, Pygmy Nuthatches, and Magpies. Haven't spotted any Pelicans here, either.

I've been won over, though, by the beauty of the mountains and the rich diversity of the migrating songbirds and visiting Turkeys under a canopy of Eagles, various Hawks and Falcons, and the gracefully circling Turkey Vultures.

I think I'm going to fit in here.
