The Council

convening
at the birdbath
migration is debated

Two Birds

the expanse of the sky
was unfathomable
so they flew together

Rendezvous

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

Duty

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
