Birdwatching III

Bluer than sapphire
Singing from a budding tree
Indigo bunting.



Parking lot pigeons
Strut toward reflected rivals
In shiny hubcaps.

Harbinger II

Listen – in the sky
Tiny jet planes twittering
Chimney swifts are here!


An old summer hat
Missing straw around the brim
Sparrows build their nests.

Hermit Thrush

Ethereal song
Liquid notes that spiral up
Vanish into air.


Robin, cardinal, finch
All singing in the same tree
No – one mockingbird!


Shaggy starlings buzz
Clack and rattle, hum and squeak
Each a one-bird band.
