Shock Treatment

Two weeks to Spring.
The birds are happy
an increased food supply,
willing girl birds.
Dog walkers leave doggie coats home.
Coffee shops have outdoor tables.
Everyone is ready
for warm weather.
Suddenly there’s an announcement:
a Nor’easter is coming.
At first there’s disbelief,
followed by shock
as fierce winds blow,
followed by rain, then snow.
When we recuperate
from the deluge,
some of us may remember
the power of Nature.
