Busy Neighbors

birds - sleek
with tinge of blue,
undersides of red
and dotted tails - dart when
I step out of my back door.
Circling overhead, they soar.  I’d
like a closer look at them, to find
their nest. . .but  just can’t catch that pair at rest!

    I feel the same way about two little cardinals I see in my back yard every day. Every time I try to get a closer look, off they fly away!...Milt

    This brings to mind the daring, swooping blue jays that feast in our backyard. Because of all the stray cats few birds will dare visit, but the jays and cardinals are brave. Love, daver

    wonderful imagery. I can see those birds clearly. I may be inventing this, but I like it that the form of this poem is the opposite of the previous one... Jack

    It's strange to think of them as neighbors. But that's exactly what they are. Having such appreciation for our neighbors. What a wonderful thought. Gladys Cravitz was a little toooo busy. :)
