Theres a slight breeze on this sunny spring day.

I was here a year ago, this week.

The city had conducted a controlled burn of the cattails. It was a black, charred mess, and there was a lingering smoky smell.

They haven’t done a burn this year.

Today, many of the golden stalks are matted down from being dried and broken, weighed down with snow for the past few months.

I hear a lot of birds in the trees; I dont see much activity.

The water level is low. I see several mated pairs of mallards on the water.

            the shining green of the mallards head in the sunshine

            just days before spring
            one fall leaf still on the tree 
            a couple of crows
