Spring issue published in April (submission window: 1 February - 31 March)

1. On gradient winds,
matching a clarion call
Eagles hitch a ride.          
(The howls of March winds)

2. A trim crimson comb
proud strut, surefooted, perched high,
calls to wake the world

3. Twitters, humming beats,
dashing fliers zip around,
swiftest wings, unfurled.           (Hummingbird migration)

4. Romantic at heart
curious, clever
nature's lake builders

habitat framers
charming artisan
Busy Beavers 

5. Rudbeckia titters
Roots stretching in fertile earth
Butterfly frolics.

6. Gramps whispers,
secrets barely reach my ears.
Tranquil woods, I hear.

7. A nibble, a tug-
feel the line, ignore the bug.
Wait, now jerk the hook.
