This week's single word at Sunday Scribblings 2 is time

How do bluebells know
when it’s time
to peep above the soil?

How to birds know
when it’s time
to cross vast continents?

How does the sun know
when it’s time
to sink beneath the sea?

How do rainclouds know
when it’s time
for me to light my barbecue?
