House Wren On The Garden Rail


where to stay?
when all the world
is home

The Thrum Of Thirst


sipping sweetness
from the false foxglove
mocktails in the afternoon

Repose

motionless he remained
his soul already
flown to heaven

Bluebird So Soft


bright eyed
in a blue sky
hope personified

Directions Home


at the fence end
the birdhouse’s front yard
a round of iris pods

Solitude


I gave
my heart to nature
now I am never alone

On The Last Day Of The Year


looking into
the setting sun
farewell to the past

Eyewitness


taking in the scene
the season’s change
to brown from green

How We Save Each Other

grace surrounded us
as hawk and humans surrendered fear
courage was found and help accepted


DETAILS: We managed to cut the barbed wire fence,
and softly secured the hawk who was picked up by the Fish and Game Warden
and taken to a bird rescue where he/she had surgery and will be rehabilitated

At The Edge


listening
to the purple
echos

In The Enormous Woods There Perches A Tiny Soul


feathered emerald
the size
of a birch leaf

Morning’s Song


voices raised
in joyous praise
birds greet the day
