every year they meet
at the base of the tree
their love renewed each spring

As the Day Slowly Rises

beneath the surface
the clarity
of dreams persist


the sentry
guarding the feeder
as dawn wakes the day

Mourning Doves In The Afternoon

it’s much too soon
to start a nest dear
it always snows in April

Redhead In The Rhythm Section

a fixed concentration
on the syncopation
of sustenance seeking

Salt and Pepper

bird peppered sky
snow salted land
the seasoned season

Comings And Goings On The Marsh

room for all
the hurried arrival
the leisurely stroll

Summit of the Small and Large

oriole and eagle
the meeting
of beauty and power
