1.Carolina Wren 2. Cat Watching

Two poems, written on the same day, observing out my window the Carolina Wren, then when I went outside for something, seeing my cat sitting in the window where I had just been.

Carolina Wren

Sitting

Sprawling

with no particular thought

‘Til caught

By a rustling ‘neath the window

A wren, to and fro                                                                    

Rusty orange breast, and the rest                                                                

Warm brown, bright white eye stripe.                                                  

Looking so alert, jumping from branch to leaf

No grief.

All happy energy

And me?

Sitting                                                        

Sprawling

 

The End
