the first day



For the first time in months, ice turned to water
and the sun made heat instead of just shadows.

For the first time the day felt like it was not
entirely winter, but beginning the soft caving in

that begins something else.  A V of geese, low and perfect
over the roof are lit differently today; the slant of sun

lighting the precision of their wings
softens suddenly and without fanfare.


I have an unexpected day to myself, a chair
near the woodstove, a cleared table to work at.

I'm still being realistic.  The frost still blurs to opaque
the mudroom windows.  The sparrows still crowd

the branches of trees like dark commas.  We are still
at winter's heart.


But the shift has happened, a collection of light
between trees one minute sooner, then another;

the shell has cracked and
there's no putting it back
together.

In the desert to the east are two excellent reserves: the Azraq Wetland Reserve and the Shaumari Wildlife Reserve, both of which have eco-lodgcs or campsites nearby. Managed by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) (see Conservation, page 11), Air Jordan Shoes,the Azraq Wetland Reserve is one of the best places in Jordan to see migrating, breeding and wintering birds, including the country’s national bird, the delicately grey and pink coloured Sinai rosefinch (Carpodacus synoicus). You may also catch sight of the Temminks horned lark (Eremophila bilopha), the trumpet finch (Rhodopechys githaginea) or in winter the mighty Bonelli s eagle (Aquila fasciatus) soaring overhead.

Lying in the heart of the semi-arid desert landscape, the Shaumari Wildlife Reserve is a few kilometres southwest of the Azraq Wetland Reserve. Covering an area of 22km2, Cheap Jordans,it was founded with the specific purpose of breeding species of animal that were extinct in the local region and those that were endangered. On a visit look out for the magnificent Arabian oryx (Oryx leucoryx), a white antelope that was all but extinct in the 1970s and only survived because of a small protected herd in the US from which a new world breeding and reintroduction programme originated. Today, the Shaumari Wildlife Reserve works with zoos in other countries on a variety of breeding programmes.

'I he Mujib Nature Reserve is further south and is a dramatic place of contrasting terrains. To the north and south of the reserve are mountain ranges, which in places reach a height of around 900m (2,952ft). Ihe reserve hugs the mountainside before falling sharply along the Wadi Mujib gorge with its impossibly sheer rock faces, new jordans,to the Dead Sea. At -420m (-1,378ft) below sea level in part, the reserve is the lowest on earth. It has canyons, rivers and natural pools that prove a magnet for adventurous hikers and abseilers.
