early bird calls –
there's nothing I don't know
about the dawn
rosy hued or gray tinged
I keep company with all

  in spring rain
I dig a hole to plant
a tree …
resting perch
for a visiting crow

    You come to me cold,
a little bird in snow,
wanting me
to warm you, but how
with no fuel in you to burn?

six weeks
the boy on life-support
& now
fledgling sparrows
are leaving their nests

  little birds,
without looking up
I count
the shadows on the terrace ...
does the sun always follow your path

    nightly news
a blur of good
and evil ...
an owl's cry settles
in the marsh
