warm spring

browse line
a distinct line
on the hedgerows
where the deer
heavy deer population
(remember those ticks?)
reach to browse
the trees are racing
to leaf out
blossoms everywhere
 fence line maze
so green
so fast
and there were two of these
 two of these, too 
why did i find them
on the roadside?

 there are new ones
i counted nine
 summer weather these 
past few spring days
