Birdwatching III

Bluer than sapphire
Singing from a budding tree
Indigo bunting.

Hermit Thrush

Ethereal song
Liquid notes that spiral up
Vanish into air.

Harbinger

Waterfalls of song
Splendid in his russet vest
First robin of spring.

Thaw II

Warm winter morning
Cardinals tricked into song
Believing in spring.

Songbird

Scarlet cardinal
The bright heart of a bare tree
Throbbing with a song.

Hunt

Pierced by falcon claws
Red feathers on the white snow
A cardinal sin.

Memory

The old mockingbird
Still imitates his whistle –
How many summers?
