Wake Up Call

I almost missed one of my favorite seasons;
I had been busy self-pollinating worry.
The sight of a robin on the berm
of a road way too familiar lately,
caught my attention.
his appearance,

that snaked ahead of us.
Like seeing hope, the hills
brought me to them.
glazed eyes cleared,

of unseen birds.
The distinctive aroma of change
stunned me to the present...
and,
for the first time in a while,
