We had a cold snap, but mostly the weather has been warm.  Recently at the birdfeeder I have seen a flock of doves, some sparrows and grackles, and a pair of cardinals.  Currently blooming: eranthis, snowdrops, a few forsythia, miniature Dutch iris.

Weather is nice again.  :D  Today I cleaned up the asparagus patch in the forest garden and planted half the new roots.

I refilled the birdfeeders.  Mourning doves have been active around the hopper feeder today.

I heard a woodpecker drumming, and looked around until I saw a downy banging away on a walnut tree.  \o/  

The first of my daffodils are beginning to bloom under the maple tree near the house.  They're not all the way open yet, about halfway.

This poem is spillover from the February 7, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] redsixwing and [personal profile] technoshaman. It also fills the "odd couple" square in my 2-1-17 Romantic card for the Valentines Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] technoshaman. It belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains some sensitive issues. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It includes anxiety, awkward conversations, references to Shiv's crappy past and the emotional fallout from that, frank discussion of kink, Shiv's head is full of landmines that Gray is just beginning to discover, and other challenges. But the hard candy relationship work is wrapped in a bunch of fluff.
