March has arrived – whether as a lion or a lamb, it’s too early to say – but, there is certainly music in the air! You can hear it in the wind. Just listen to the lion’s roar in Rachael Ikins’ (Baldwinsville) 2011 haiku:
Always hungry, March, Sub-zero gales, snow knives cut. Peaceful arc, tender spring.
You can hear it in Thomas Stock’s (Ft. Plain) inspired 2015 haiku:
Hear eager March sun Turn Winter packed icy eaves To notes of spring song.
And, like Eric Darby, (California, 2009), you can hear it in the lilting song of our fine-feathered friends:
A robin perches on the snowplow blade, singing its bright orange song.
Ten below zero / Chickadees go on chirping / Outside my window
Lion or lamb, March has a beautiful sound all its own. Listen for it and let us know what you hear!
