Hesitant Migration 

Went south for winter

Flourished in balmy climates —

ON CALM POND

 

Bright green lily pads

Serenely float on calm pond 

A sleepy frog rests

Bees land blooms provide
Flits delivering magic-
 New plants far and wide

JOURNEY

Walking summer trails

over sand dunes sway tall reeds

Sea beckons come swim
