For a Spell the World Becomes Small —- Monday, March 8, 2021

The cranes are starting to leave us

They are still landing here, resting, eating…gathering

Their distinctive calls brightening the day

For just a short while now

We will enjoy their presence

Before they move on toward Idaho

Their spring, summer, and early fall nesting sites.

Flying, higher and higher toward exciting adventures someplace wonderful.
