SNOWBIRD VARIATIONS

SNOWBIRD VARIATIONS

chirping merrily
black midst an awful whiteness
fat snowbirds seeding 

once in a while
a twiggy branch comes alive
snowbird fluffing

lazy winter’s watch
overcoming tedium
suddenly – snowbirds	

a beautiful frost
flaming red against the snow
winter cardinal

the frost coated limbs
winter’s cold magical scene
blackbirds brush the sky

    Daver, a poem is a wonderful to capture snowbirds, you say it so well. You wouldn't believe the number of times I have chased cardinals trying to get their picture, lol. Enjoyed this.
