NaPoWriMo #4 Since Spring

National Poetry Writing Month

Since spring arrived despite the snow flakes
Since I’ve returned to the seasonal zoo job
Since I’m working outside in the fresh air
Since the activity is physical and rewarding
Since I’m surrounded by friends and animals
I am
happily
exhaustedly
