Somewhere in a warm nest


A window pops out of the sky
Wings beat and bleed
In a flurry of liberated down

Dry specks of blood crack and fall
Floating down like feathers
Inside Winter’s slow motion

Somewhere in a warm nest
A tiny bird dreams of the day
The time
The sky closed up without warning
She flaps her wings involuntarily
Her mate covers her head with his neck
They close their little black eyes
inĀ  synchronicity


Of birds and breakfast


Of birds and breakfast

A heron appears out of the west falling across daybreak on its way to breakfast

Thousands of pounds of dough is kneaded rolled and pounded into biscuits

Roosters crow into the sunrise

Ties are straightened

Baby robins stretch their way toward the light that pierces their still shut eyelids

Engines rumble into the sky

A murder of crows call to each other in the pines

A Jake brake rips the night into morning

The owl closes her eyes
