Spring Song

Ersatz harbingers
Starlings imitate robins
Over city streets.

Recycling Day

Ice on the sidewalks
A discarded Christmas tree
Shelters the sparrows.


Early Christmas treats
Red finches pluck the berries
From a holly wreath.


Ripe nightshade berries
Robins stain their yellow bills
With bright crimson juice.


Chirping goldfinches
Rival the sunflower’s hue
Late-summer garden.

Hiatus II

Long days sick in bed
The noisy sparrow fledglings
Flutter in the eaves.


Sleek cedar waxwings
Murmur in the mulberries
Drowsy afternoon.
