bugs are out now
 and moths
 i saw a hummingbird feeder
 wonder if i should put out mine
 some critters surprise
i was looking through the great holes
in the trunk of this old apple
the one mist and rose, the gray mares
knew and loved and stood 
muzzle to croup 
all those years ago
 that old tree now hosts
multitudes of bugs 
and one small moth
 i found them both
bug in crocus
bug on bark
before sunset yesterday.
today we say goodbye to a friend
and welcome the spring
and wonder wonder wonder 
at the turning of the season.
