Winter Writings: Day 80

The plum tree woke up today and dressed itself in delicate pink pearls. Three robins, not willing to be out done, stuck out their persimmon chests and danced among the branches. Chickadees flitted nervously, trying on blossom costumes to wear to the Solstice celebration. The drab brown sparrows ignored them all, industrious in their attention to the feeders, knowing well that color can be a fleeting event in spring and will not feed your belly.
