Spring Chickens

Spring Chickens

Beaks opening calcium doors
a furious, curious peck at a time,

mad escape hatch scurry,
helmeted with half-shells,

their hustle and bustling rush
black-streaked and golden,

their new-born footprints
fresh on the mind:

pure gold of spring,
fresh-hatched chickens

winged dandelions dancing
bright snapshots of dawn.
