Company Returns

You can barely see them.

But go look closely at that rock rising out of a man-made pond that's  hanging around in a lot waiting to become out-of-reach-expensive housing

He's standing guard and she's kinda  hidden in the weeds. 

I had seen them a year ago.  Passing that lot many times after I kept looking for them.

Then on a day, just today, so unspring-like, rushing through cold when just yesterday it had been summer-hot, I glanced through the chain-linked fence.

He was swimming around and so was she and then I looked closely.

There, paddling after her were a whole bunch of itty-bitties.   No matter how cold it was, spring and its company had returned home.
