spring puttering

Time has come.
Dig out green yard clogs.
Grab a camera.
Fill the bird feeder.
Tiptoe into the chilly dusk.
Tramp across grass, beaten down by relentless winter 
and beginning to green.
Hug close to the flower beds,
 squat lower and lower
and spot new green:
swollen daffodil shoots poking up through the brown.
And deep purple!
Tiny Siberian iris
bursting and proudly showing like royalty
amid the common browns,
leftover leaves.
She's on her way!
