J-Love In Our Ages Love In Stages

In the first month
Love was tentative
Love was laughter
Love was ecstasy

In the second month
Love made questions
Love made laughter
Love made richness

In the third month
Love gave friendship
Love gave laughter
Love gave family

In the fourth month
Love became promise
Love became laughter
Love became spring

In the fifth month
Love grew flowers
Love grew laughter
Love grew deeper

Not Yet Spring

The snow along the edges of the road is no longer white
No buds or new grasses surprise our eyes
Birds are desperate for food
The suet and the seeds need to be replenished daily

Hundreds of birds flock to the feeders,
Peck at the seeds spilled on the melting snow drifts
They are so close, no binoculars needed to watch the wonder of their feet
As they land on the feeder hangers or the way they open the seeds
