Spring returns to Israel

Spring Returns!

A few weeks back I wrote this:

The hawks are back!
I just saw two of them flying up the wadi
jumped out of my seat and leaned over my desk
looking out my window as they sailed past
brown, motionless wings
drawn on by unseen winds
drawing my heart after them

Today I went for a walk on the wild side of Jerusalem's Sachar Park - the wild rakafot (cyclamens), kolaniot (poppies), and skediot (almonds) are blooming up a storm - all pink, red, and white. Beautiful!
